Press Release: Ipswitch Reveals Spam Hit New High Over Christmas

...Festive Inboxes Contained over 84% Spam Leading to a Renewed Fear...

Ipswitch Inc., a leading developer of network monitoring, messaging and managed file transfer solutions, today announced the result of its sixth Spamometer survey, revealing that 84.4% of all email received is spam, the highest rate for almost two years. This compares with 70% the previous quarter and only 57% the previous Christmas period. The increase is shown to be down to the continual rise of stock tip and phishing emails; the inherently dangerous spam messages asking the recipient to supply personal information that can lead to identity theft.
