Spammers like Obama more than McCain

Posted on Sunday, October 12 2008 @ 03:17:14 CEST by

NY Times reports Obama is seven times more popular among spammers than McCain:
According to Secure Computing Corp., spammers were nearly seven times more likely to slap Obama's name in the subject line than McCain's during September. The bulk of Obama's lead in the spam wars came from a massive blitz early in the month.

"Spammers ran a big campaign around the time of the Republican convention," said Sven Krasser, the director of data mining research at Secure Computing. "Since then, it's been a little more equal, although there's still a bias for Obama."
While Obama wins by a landslide, Palin slightly beads Biden:
Meanwhile, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, the GOP's candidate for vice president, has been beating Sen. Joe Biden, D-Del., in the spam count by a ratio of 5 to 4.

The numbers didn't surprise Krasser. "Palin and Obama are the most targeted by spammers because they got more media attention during the month," he said. "Spam trends generally follow media trends, they're just trying to judge what the public is interested in."
