Title: CS Colloquium: Exploring the Technical and Economic Factors  
Underlying Internet Spam (Geoff Voelker, UCSD)
Title: Exploring the Technical and Economic Factors Underlying Internet Spam

Presenter: Geoff Voelker, UCSD.

Abstract: The large-scale compromise of Internet hosts and services form a  
platform for supporting a range of criminal activity in the so-called  
Internet underground economy.  In this talk I will start by quickly  
surveying work that our group has performed over the past decade on the  
problems posed by these threats, and how our research directions have  
evolved over time in response to them.  In the remainder of the talk, I  
will go into detail on recent work that our group has  performed in an  
end-to-end analysis of the spam value chain.  Using extensive measurements  
over months of diverse spam data, broad crawling of naming and hosting  
infrastructures, and product purchases from a wide variety of  
spam-advertised sites, I'll characterize the modern spam ecosystem  
including system infrastructure, business models, cost accounting, and  
consumer demand.  I'll end by characterizing the relative prospects for  
anti-spam interventions at multiple levels, initial results of  
interventions in the payment tier, and where our group is headed going  

This work is part of a long-standing collaborative effort between UCSD and
