project-honey-potSpam protection is an ongoing issue when it comes to your E-Mail, Website, Instant Messaging and other forms of web spam that I may not be quite aware of at this point.  There are various different types of  “Spam” such as E-Mail Spam, Mobile Spam, Instant Messaging Spam, Search Engine Spam, and many other types that may not yet be categorized as well.  A fairly good definition and description on “What is Spam?” can help you further understand this post as well.

Yes, “Spam” as in the junk you receive in your e-mail Inbox and not the stuff you buy at the grocery store.  A continuous battle to eliminate individual spammers, spam software, and devices is at full force by those wishing to eliminate all spam and in hope to remove it from the web.  One particular application that has just served its 1 Billionth Spam E-Mail has alot to be proud of in what it has achieved.

1 Billion Spam Attempts – BLOCKED!

The Project Honey Pot is the first ever and only distributed FREE spam-detection system that has the ability to catch spammers before they even hit your website.  Yes, that’s right!  On December 9, 2009 The Project Honey Pot system has detected and blocked its 1 Billionth Spam E-Mail that was a phishing scam of the Internal Revenue Service thru a computer located somewhere in India.  There are over 6 billion people currently living on the planet Earth and of which 1 Billion would have had to make at least one spam attempt in order to fill this giant quota.  I’m not quite sure if spam is your cup of tea but personally I think it’s quite annoying and the web would be a safer place without it.


The Project Honey Pot and Joomla CMS – Blocking Spam Attacks

On a more informative note The Project Honey Pot is available as a standalone system to be implemented in your hosting environment as well.  You can download the latest version of this system from The Project Honey Pot Website and also acquire support and documentation on how to make it work for you.  You are also in luck when it comes to building your own website with the Joomla Content Management System.  There is a certain Joomla SEO Component that you can download for your Joomla application that will let you take full advantage of this system and block all spam that attempts to attack your website.

If you are looking for a system that blocks all spam attacks to your website then Project Honey Pot may be your solution.  Remember that this is a FREE distribution system and it comes with limited support!
