Spam Levels Reach All-Time High Percentages

Spam levels reached an all-time high at 95% of all e-mails this past quarter, according to a new report by Commtouch.  These staggering figures will cause organizations to struggle more than ever in finding email important for legal or business purposes.  The challenge of isolating, securing and processing privileged, relevant and critical business information from among everything else is getting more costly and risky each day.

For more on the report titled “Email Threats Trend Report for the third quarter of 2007,” see DM.com.  The report found that as image spam declined, new kinds of attachment spam such as PDF and Excel spam increased. Pharmaceuticals and sexual enhancers were the most popular spam topics, at 30% and 23%, respectively.
