How Spam Works

BusinessWeek has a great story and graphic explaining how spammers make their living, based on research by Jacobs School Computer Science Professor Stefan Savage and colleagues here at UC San Diego and at UC Berkeley.

"You pay the money, and you get a product," Savage told BusinessWeek

Researcher Damon McCoy, also in computer science and engineering, was instrumental in putting the graphic together.

Read the story here.
