"Spammers are becoming increasingly sophisticated in both their approach and techniques used to harness email addresses. Our goal is to research how consumers’ behaviour and attitude make them susceptible to spam," said Damien Rame, head of Marketing at Vircom Inc. "To make matters worse, spammers are not just content in sending advertising emails, but also dangerous malware and phishing messages. These types of emails compromise the end-users computer and result in identity-theft."

The survey specifically questions behavior in regards to the use of social networking sites that access address books, unencrypted Wi-Fi usage at public hotspots and familiarity with known phishing techniques. The survey also covers end-user attitudes towards spam once it manages to arrive in their inbox.

The entire survey can be found at Participants to the survey are eligible to win regular prizes such as gift cards from Best Buy, Subway and iTunes, along with a grand prize of the new iPhone 4S. Results of the survey will be released in Q1 of 2012.
