Computerized Horizons unveils anti-spam database

Published on .

Newburyport, Mass.—Computerized Horizons, a security software company that markets anti-spam and virus protection products, on Friday announced it has created a real-time database of IP addresses that transmit viruses.

The Multiple Threat Lookup Database is available to all anti-spam software customers for free. Computerized Horizons will also provide access to non-customers for a licensing fee.

“Our decision to collect the source IP address was made because the IP addresses are the only component of spam that cannot be forged” said Barry Simpson, CEO of Computerized Horizons, in a statement.

“The database is scalable, operates in real time and in the future can be configured to address other spam issues such as ‘phishing.’ “
