Just wanted to drop some quick stats that I ran across in an article featured on New Scientist about the shocking volume of spam that is perpetuated on the Net.
- As much as 91% of all email is now spam. – Postini, November 2006
- Daily spam volume is up by 120% over last 12 months. – Postini, November 2006
- In October 2006, image spam accounted for 25% of all spam. – IronPort Systems, October 2006
