Spam levels dropping?

Post by digidog » Mon Jul 20, 2015 11:54 pm

Some good new... Symantec claims that spam levels have fallen to below 50% of all email sent -- for the first time in a decade.
According to our metrics, the overall spam rate has dropped to 49.7 per cent. The last time Symantec recorded a similar spam rate was clear back in September of 2003.
Nahorney said phishing was also down despite a whopping 57.6 million malware variants, an increase of 12.2 million on May, being churned out by VXer factories.
