Further to my presentation on fighting spam (at the October MUUG 
meeting), I just read an IT World Canada article called "Top 10 e-mail 
blunders of 2008"...


Following a link about backscatter messages in that article, I came 
across an article from last year (from the same site), about some spam 
research projects that are in the works...


This article had numerous links to other interesting articles, among 
them this one on anti-phishing education (from a sister publication)...


Finally, this article mentioned an interesting project at CMU, where 
they developed an online game called Anti-Phishing Phil as a teaching 
tool.  Here's a link to the game, if you want to get to the goods
