Spam traffic in email hits a 5-yr low »
The share of spam in email traffic decreased steadily throughout 2012 to hit a five-year low. The average for the year stood at 72.1% — 8.2 percentage points less than in 2011. Such a prolonged and substantial decrease in spam levels is unprecedented, said security solutions firm Kaspersky Lab. […] The main reason behind the decrease in spam volume is the overall heightened level of anti-spam protection. Another factor behind the falling levels of spam is inexpensive advertising on legal platforms. Spam is the use of electronic messaging system to send unsolicited bulk emails.
