Beagle sniffs out email scammers

While hackers get considerable media attention, most cybercrime actually comes from a less dramatic source: email phishing. … Researchers at New York University [Tandon School of Engineering] have responded with Beagle -- forensic software that scans streams of email content and metadata and then presents results in a visual interface that highlights suspicious connections. The NYU team, led by Enrico Bertini, assistant professor of computer science and engineering, has already begun sharing Beagle -- named for its ability to sniff out evidence -- with law enforcement agencies at no cost.
