I use my iCloud email and Apple's Mail app and I keep receiving emails from what I assume is a bot spamming emails. It doesn't matter if I block the sender because they just keep coming with different emails. Is there any way to get rid of this
Eventually, one of my recipients alerted me that my email went to spam, and I turned to Google to do some research. As it turns out, there is an industry-wide email authentication, policy, and reporting protocol named DMARC, and it appears Apple upped its DMARC policy to \"quarantine\" in July.
Essentially, this means that emails sent from an Apple-provided email address, such as @mac.com, @me.com, or @icloud.com, via a third-party email client such as Gmail, are now likely to be automatically marked as spam.
If you monitor these things, you might have noticed that Apple's consumer email domains (iCloud domains) -- mac.com, me.com and icloud.com -- have moved to a \"p=quarantine\" DMARC policy. This means that if you have an email address in these domains, your ability to send outbound mail using an email service provider or other, non-Apple email platform to send mail, deliverability won't look so good. Mail may not be blocked outright (Apple didn't move to \"p=reject\") but moving to \"p=quarantine\" means it's much more likely that your mail could end up in the spam folder.
Apple told me that I should be able to avoid the marked-as-spam issue by ensuring that emails from my @me.com address are set up to be sent through iCloud SMTP servers: smtp.mail.me.com. Apple has a related support document.
For further testing, I then reverted back to smtp.me.com, thinking that my emails would be marked as spam again. However, all of my emails still landed in the inboxes of others, including contacts I emailed for the first time.

Just opening a spam email can result in getting even more spam, and clicking a malicious link or attachment can expose you to ransomware or other types of malware, such as the Emotet botnet that spreads from inbox to inbox.
After you start training your email how to recognize and stop spam emails, teach yourself how to spot amazon phishing emails and other spam on your own. Spammers may know how to avoid getting caught by spam email filters, but they may not be able to fool a well-trained eye.
While filtering addresses some spam emails, you should outright block spam email addresses that are persistent, dangerous, or fake. And remember to report any internet scams you come across, such as Apple ID phishing scams and other threats.
Blocking unwanted emails stops spam from reaching that email address permanently, but be careful how you go about doing it, because opening some spam emails can prompt a deluge of more junk emails from other spam accounts.
Creating a secondary email account is another way to protect your mailbox from spam. Email addresses used for purchases, event sign-ups, or downloads often end up on spam lists. Using one email address for work, friends, and family and another for everything else can drastically clean up your inbox.
And remember to empty your spam folder periodically. Emails you mark as spam are usually kept in your email for a certain period of time, in case you want to reverse your decision. To make sure you inbox stays clean, or even if you want to free up space, empty your spam folder.
Messages that your Microsoft 365 email account marks as junk are automatically moved to your Junk Email folder. However, spammers and phishing attempts are continually evolving.

Junk email messages are typically referred to as spam. These are messages that you don't want to receive that may be advertising products you don't use or find offensive. If you choose the Junk option, a copy of the message may be sent to Microsoft to help update our spam filters, and the message will be moved from your Inbox to your Junk Email folder.
In our experience, the vast majority of Telegram spammers use large established groups to cast a wide net for potential victims. Telegram groups can hold up to 200,000 members, so the platform is ripe for exploitation in this way.
Telegram attempts to make it easy for your friends to find you using your phone number. By default, everyone can find you using your number. This means that if your phone number has appeared in a data breach, spammers can add it to their lists and identify you as a Telegram user.

Is that an Android phone in your pocket, or are you just spewing thousands of spam text-messages That question has become relevant again with a resurgence of the spam bot dubbed SpamSoldier. Researchers at AdaptiveMobile, a provider of network-level security protection, noticed heightened activity last week after a lull since late 2012. AdaptiveMobile's Cathal McDaid spelled out the danger for SecurityWatch.
Signs of Life \"I'm head of security practices,\" said McDaid, \"and our responsibility is to monitor and detect security threats like this worldwide. We've been monitoring this one for a long time because it caused a lot of spam when it emerged last December.\" McDaid explained that even a couple of infected devices could send as many as 10,000 spam messages each day. \"That's a huge impact on the mobile network,\" he said, \"and huge bills for the victim.\"
Simple Propagation The actual working of the bot is quite simple. It spews out spam messages like \"Download the Newest version of Angry Birds for Android phones for free at hxxp://[MALICOUS DOMAIN]gg.biz.\" Unwitting dupes who click the link may actually get the game installed. They also get a malicious bot that takes orders from the SpamSoldier Command and Control servers.
The Good News According to an AdaptiveMobile blog post(Opens in a new window) about the revivified SpamSoldier, the new bot-herders aren't doing such a good job. The post states that \"none of [the malicious APK files] was working due to the C&C server not being correctly set up\" and goes on to say that \"it seemed the spammers were struggling with repackaging the malware, and setting up the C&C server.\"
McDaid confirmed that the bot \"can do more than what it's done so far. Right now it's just sending spam.\" He speculated that the bot-herders might work on monetization by driving traffic toward affiliate sites, or scam sites. But don't worry. \"We're right there in the mobile operator's networks,\" said McDaid. \"That's how we can block these types of spam and these types of messages before they get to the customers.\"
Not sure if you will find this relevant, but I get text spam, which seems like it's what is infecting phones. I know this is how I would go about it. Might be something to look into. They all originate from AT&T prepaid phones and AT&T have already informed me that these numbers are sending thousands of texts a min and 1 IMEI is linked to multiple phone numbers, yet they will not block these numbers, and allow it to continue spamming text to phones.
I get lots of these, and would not surprise me since they come through text messages, that these websites are infecting the phones of people who click the link. As for the spam email from android mobile, Yea I get those to. If I can find the other text, I know it is linked to a virus for android phones. I pulled the battery out, and started using a flip phone, so I know they can't affect me besides spamming me with text messages.
Android mobile spammed. There are three types of spam that Android mobiles are subjected to - spam phone calls, spam SMS, and spam email. And if you as a consumer are using an Android mobile phone, you would be receiving or would have received spam.

An email marketing message can reach hundreds or thousands or millions of users within seconds and without much effort. Advances in technology have enabled easy spam bombarding of end-user android phones.
Spam annoys, disturbs, and takes up considerable time. Spam calls are highly irritating and can upset the flow of thought and work. Imagine being in a meeting, or driving, or sleeping, and receiving a spam call during that period!
