Spam and Malware Detections at 100,000 per Hour

Spam detection software company Mail-Filters.com reported that last week its servers had detected an average of 103,967 sources of spam or malware per hour being sent to its customers. The company warned, however, that this was only "the tip of the iceberg" and the number of pieces of spam and malware sent were likely much larger.

"Given that the typical number of spammers in any given hour is in the hundreds, we can say that the vast majority of these machines are hijacked. Not only that, this is a one hour snapshot of spammers sending messages to our partners' customers," Ben Westbrook, CEO of Mail-Filters said.
