Filtration, SMS, Spam.


The electronic communication enables the instant and all type availability of user. The different form of information transition can be drawn in the form of SMS and emails. But these emails and SMS systems are also used by the individuals and firm as medium of their advertisement. Spam messages not only involves the unwanted messages but it also includes some viruses and threat to the security system. In this paper, a study to the SMS filtration methods is provided. The paper has explored the types of SMS spams, its threats and various filtration methods to detect the spam SMS.
