    - Bad e-mail habits sustains spam
    The 'bad behaviour' of e-mail users is helping to sustain the spam industry, a new study has found.

    According to a survey conducted by security firm Mirapoint and market research company the Radicati Group, nearly a third of e-mail users have clicked on links in spam messages.

    One in ten users have bought products advertised in junk mail.

    Clicking on a link in a spam message can expose people to viruses and alert spammers to live e-mail accounts.

    The fact that one in ten e-mail users are buying things advertised in spam continues to make it an attractive business, especially given that sending out huge amounts of spam costs very little, the report concludes.
