According to Internet Security Firm Surf Control, ten percent of spammers are using Microsoft’s MSN spaces blogging service and it is likely to increase.

MSN Spaces, launched at the end of last year, has been offering free content sharing space. Users sign up for a Microsoft passport and then publish blogs.

According to Charles Heunemann, managing director of security firm Surf Control “About three weeks ago 30 percent of the spam on the Internet was directing victims to Geocities sites advertising pharmaceuticals. Spammers have moved their content to [MSN Spaces] and from what we gather, the volume of spam attacking MSN sites is about 10 percent–but we think it will grow”.
