Spam Index, Q2 2008 Part 1

Spamming attacks have quadrupled since the beginning of 2008 - UK to blame

The UK’s only guaranteed anti-spam company has today revealed results of their quarterly spamming index for Q2 2008 and worryingly, the average amount of spam blocked per customer for those 3 months has almost quadrupled to 30,846, since Q1. All results from the spamming index are evaluated below.

A leading UK based anti-spam software company has today revealed results of their quarterly spamming index for Q2 2008. When assessing the quantities of spam that had prevented from reaching intended participants between April 2008 and June 2008, some concerning results were collated.

Figures show that, on average 30,846 spam emails were blocked per customer in Q2 2008, in comparison to just 8,156 emails blocked per customer in Q1 of the same year. This is an increase of approximately 22,690 spam emails blocked in just three months.

A breakdown of these emails reveals Royal Bank of Scotland to be the main company targeted by phishing attacks. Customers who choose Orange as an Internet Service Provider receive the highest percentage of spam for the second consecutive Spamming Index, and the UK is now guilty of being the main source of phishing attacks.
