Virus and spam - January 2006 statistics

Posted on Monday, February 20 2006 @ 00:16:04 CET by


Commtouch, the developer of the RPD technology for real time anti-spam and Zero-Hour virus protection, today announced spam and computer virus statistics for the month of January 2006. The data is based on information continuously gathered by the Commtouch Detection Center, which analyzed more than 2 billion messages from over 130 countries during the month of January.

“The number of massive attacks grew in January,” points out Amir Lev, President and CTO. “In large part due to the speed of distribution, they succeeded in reaching many of their targets despite the presence of traditional anti-virus programs.”
