|Study: 62 Percent of all Internet emails are classified as spam already|
With their new February statistic the anti spam company Brightmail want to show that about 62 percent of all emails can be classified as spam actually. Most spam messages are adverts for products (24%) and financial services (18%). 14% of the spams are classified as "for adults only" and 15% are deceits, including "phishing" i.e. the angling for confident customer information.
The statistics are created frequently by Brightmail's network of bait and switch postboxes. The so called Logistics Operations Centers (BLOCs) in Dublin and San Francisco process catched spam messages all around the clock and create more than 30,000 new filter parameters daily for their anti spam software. Two years ago only 7 percent of all emails were spam. (nba) (Translation: ub)
