Spam accounts for 70 percent of all e-mails

Posted on Monday, September 04 2006 @ 00:27:53 CEST by


A new survey shows spam emails are growing significantly but the amount of porn spam is going down.
The survey was conducted by Ipswitch, a vendor of SMB security software. It found that 70 percent of all email received is spam, compared to 62 percent the previous quarter, and just 57 percent last Christmas. In spring 2005, however, the number of spam emails topped 80 percent, the company found.

The survey ranked the most prevalent forms of spam and found the most pertained to medication, at 36 percent. More significantly, financial/phishing spam entered the list at 19 percent of all emails received.

That, according to Ipswitch, was because filtering software and users have begun to recognize traditional spam, and have begun ignoring it. Phishing, on the other hand, uses social engineering techniques to mimic common and accepted web sites, luring unwary consumers to enter confidential information in an attempt to defraud them.
