Hendrickson Software Components on Monday announced that its Sp@mX client/server solution now includes the ability to track “phishers,” who send out e-mails disguised as legitimate messages in an effort to get the recipients to divulge personal information. The messages often appear to originate from eBay, PayPal, banks and other businesses whose customers’ accounts contain credit card and Social Security numbers, addresses and other data used to commit fraud. Sp@mX traces the phishers’ domains through the links included in the e-mails and notifies their Internet service providers (ISPs) as well as law enforcement.
Hendrickson did not note if this addition to Sp@mX was free for current users. The client edition if US$19.95 while the server version is $399.95. Volume discounts are available.
