SPAM - junk mail
University of Navarra IT Services never requests password details via e-mail.
Our servers use a number of specific strategies to detect SPAM. The two most important are filters based on (1) blacklists and (2) content analysis.
DNSBL (blacklists) checks whether incoming e-mail message servers figure on a dynamic black list. Two blacklists are currently in use: www.rediris.es/irisbl/ (part of the Spanish academic and research network) and the private network www.spamhaus.org.
Content analysis filters use pre-established rules to check the contents of a message and decide whether or not to accept it. This filter stores its results in a database, optimizing its effectiveness over time.
What should you do with SPAM?
If you receive unwanted messages, mark them as Trash or delete them.
'Phishing' is an identity-theft strategy. This form of fraud consists of acquiring information such as credit card numbers, passwords, account and other personal data under false pretences. This type of fraud normally happens via e-mail or pop-up tabs.
