Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Yahoo! has bought Stata Labs for an undisclosed amount of money. Stata makes Bloomba - an email client which allows you to search emails and their attachments. It also makes spam filter SAproxy.

Stata Labs email client Bloomba and its spam filter SAproxy will no longer be offered for sale. Customers who bought either piece of software can get a full refund or will get support for a year from when the product was bought. Premium support is no longer available. Yahoo has no plans to sell either product, according to this FAQ on Stata's website.

Because the products will no longer be sold there is speculation that Yahoo will include the technology in its own email service. Google's one gig service includes powerful search technology to enable users to find their way around so many stored messages.

Stata's website says Yahoo bought the firm to "provide Yahoo! with exceptional technological expertise and strategic assets".

In July Yahoo bought another email firm Oddpost - which makes an email client that includes an RSS feed. ®
