A Python wrapper for Andrew Tridgell's spamsum algorithm
spamsum is a fuzzy hash specifically designed for hashing email messages to detect if they are SPAM. The spamsum utility includes the ability to generate the spamsum hash and check a new message against a existing set of hashes to find a match.
pyspamsum is a Python wrapper for the core API of spamsum.
The original spamsum code has been licensed under the terms of the the Perl Artistic License. It has been slightly modified
The original code is Copyright Andrew Tridgell <firstname.lastname@example.org> 2002. It forms part of Andrew’s junkcode, and is available here:
The spamsum code in this project is derived from an updated version that was published at Linux.conf.au 2004:
For details on spamsum itself, please see the spamsum README:
At a prompt, run:
$ python setup.py install
Once installed, here are some examples of usage:
# Import spamsum and set up some strings >>> import spamsum >>> s1 = "I am the very model of a modern Major-General, I've information animal and vegetable and mineral" >>> s2 = "I am the very model of a modern Brigadier, I've information animal and vegetable and something else" >>> s3 = "Huh? Gilbert and Who?" # Evaluate the edit distance between two strings >>> spamsum.edit_distance(s1, s2) 27 # Evaluate the spamsum of some strings >>> sum1 = spamsum.spamsum(s1) >>> sum2 = spamsum.spamsum(s2) >>> sum3 = spamsum.spamsum(s2) >>> print sum1 3:kEvyc/sFIKwYclQY4MKLFE4Igu0uLzIKygn:kE6Ai3KQ/MKOgDKZn # Compare two spamsums. 0 = no match, 100 = perfect match. >>> spamsum.match(sum1, sum1) 100 >>> spamsum.match(sum1, sum2) 72 >>> spamsum.match(sum1, sum3) 0
