Security giant McAfee warned today that spammers are increasingly exploiting
online hosting companies that provide free domains and web hosting, in order to
bypass anti-spam filters.

In the vendor’s December 2009 Spam Report, McAfee Labs anti-spam technology
lead Adam Wosotowsky and director of product marketing Elan Winkler argued that
the trend has turned into "an all-out gold rush".

"Using a free hosting service is a good tactic for spammers because it is
easier to automatically block a new infected web site than to block a site that
has been around for a longer period and has possibly had legitimate traffic
associated with it," the report explained.
