The recent "spam summit" held in the Houses of Parliament in Great Britain is evidence that ministers and MPs are recognising the threat spam poses to e-business. Although legislation must be enforced, the government cannot simply ban all unsolicited e-mail. Legislation in the country is unlikely to affect spammers in the U.S. or the Far East, so governments around the world will have to work together to make an impact. Even with appropriate legislation and anti-spam technology, there is a large security hole made by the end-user.
