SAMSUNG Fights Against Spamming Attacks

SEOUL, Korea - September 3, 1997 : An unknown party continues to mass distribute fraudulent e-mail messages under the name of Samsung and its affiliates, the latest of which is titled "Samsung Spamming Lie."

As much of the Internet community is aware, these e-mails were neither written nor condoned by Samsung.

Samsung continues to work with Federal authorities to identify the individual(s) responsible for this hoax and intends to take legal action against the perpetrator(s).

To date, the investigation has revealed that the unknown party has sent mass e-mails through MSN(a reseller)and UUNET.

Upon receipt of subpoenas, MSN and UUNET released the identities and accounts of the source of these spams.

However, that information revealed forged names, phone numbers, and addresses.

Samsung respects the integrity of the Internet and the rights of Internet users and continues to work to put this violation of Internet conduct to an end.
