Although they are experiencing hugegrowth, online video chat services have become another target for spamming. Unlike spamspreading through traditional media, we believe that email and social networks are attractive tospam users spreading online video calls. The biggest spot video chat site - we've run manyexperiments to investigate spam spread spam. We have found that the biggest undesirablecampaign scams on video chat websites. Our study suggests that spam related to date or medicalfraud has a higher clickthrough rate than the email that contains the same content. In particular,the date fraud will reach 14.97% click rate.

Due to the absence of anycentralized north of audio and video streams, the monitoring probe can not be installed. In thiscase, the only solution is to collect data from a group of users participating in these services.We use this solution by creating an unwanted email program, registering several domain names,publishing these domain names with lots of spam and registering the number of visits. During theexperiments, our spam buttons were found with clients, as well as other spam bundles created byspammers and recorded the appropriate chat sessions.

A spammer uses a virtual webcam software to play an animated GIF imagewhere the corresponding spam URL is clearly displayed. The other way is to respond to thespammer in a pre-recorded phishing video where an attractive girl sits in front of the webcam
and on her keyboard. In phishing videos, spammers also launch a chatbot program that allowsunwanted spam to share text with a partner. The victim can make mistakes to make conversationswith a real chat partner. Therefore, when a chat lottery program sends an unwanted URL to avictim, the victim may believe in a bypass chat and, in this way, visit the spam URL.
