In response to the current spam storm that has been spewing billions of spam messages over the past several months, GWAVA has released GWAVA 3.7. The next version of GWAVA due out was GWAVA 4, but the recent attacks that have crippled companies around the world caused GWAVA to release key technology into its current infrastructure in order for customers to immediately take advantage of core anti-spam technology, without waiting until January for the full release of GWAVA 4.

GWAVA 3.7 has been available since 12/18/06 and has had an immediate impact on reducing the overwhelming amount of spam that companies have been receiving.

For an explanation of what is happening with the spam storm you can visit to read Charles Taite's explanation of the current tactics being used by the spammers.

An increase of volume through hijacked computers running spambots has begun to flood the Internet with a billion new messages a day, and the spammers are now deploying image spam to bypass traditional defenses. In 2005, 1% of spam was image spam and was easily detectable; today, 25% of spam is image spam and now constantly changes its identity to thwart attempts to identify the images.
