Spam

Spam is the generic term used to denote all fraudulent or phony email or Internet paraphernalia used to sway a user in to giving up their money, buy a service, or otherwise take part in an activity for which they don't necessarily opt in. Some spam is simply unsolicited commercial email (UCE) and considered a nuisance. Other spam is harmful and malicious, such as that generated by social engineers or crackers, which may contain a virus used to compromise a person, network, or organization.
