Symantec: spam 72% of all e-mail traffic

Posted on Sunday, December 16 2007 @ 01:05:19 CET by


Figures on spam seem to vary widely. Last week there was a report which claimed it was 98% of all e-mail traffic but this week Symantec reports its 'only' 72%.

Symantec monitored 450 million inboxes worldwide in November and reports about some of the highlights:

• Penny stocks use Thanksgiving holiday captions in subject line – spammers using common personal Thanksgiving-related words in the subject of emails
• Replica products a favorite for spammers this holiday season – replica gear has always been a spammer favorite. Spammers are marketing their wares using seasonal words in the subject lines of their mailings
• Spam begins to snowball – spammers collecting email addresses by using a funny .gif that shows a snowball hurtling at you through your computer
• Christmas freebie anyone? – spammers taking advantage of the season to market "free" gift cards for well known companies
• Seasonal lotto scams - in a scam targeted at UK end users, spammers have updated a lottery spam email for a Christmas Bonanza special
