Spam has posed a serious problem for users of email since its infancy. Today, automated strategies are required to deal with the massive amount of spam traffic. IPv4 networks offer a variety of solutions to reduce spam, but IPv6 networks' large address space and use of temporary addresses - both of which are particularly vulnerable to spam attacks - makes dealing with spam and the use of automated approaches much more difficult. IPv6 thus poses a unique security issue for ISPs because it's more difficult for them to differentiate between good IP addresses and those that are known to originate spam messages.
