Spam's getting more and more dangerous

Experts have recently published the results of another junk mail research. In the report they indicated a slight decrease in the number of scam letters. The proportion of malicious mail (inolving infected attachments or links to malicious websites), however, has risen by 5%, so don't forget to update your antiviruses :). According to the study, junk mail is mostly generated in the following countries: Russia and the USA (about 10% each), and the United Kingdom (nearly 8%).

Specialists also warn about the possible increase in the scammers' self-advertising letters circulation, as well as in the number of the so-called Nigerian letters. Please, be attentive, and never talk to strangers ;)

Russia and the USA… Who said the Cold War is over?

Just imagine: one day the Americans wake up and find out that the Russian spam servers are in Cuba already. Here we go: the Cuban Spam Crisis! World War III!

I'm sorry, I don't know where you've found such statistics, but if you read Wikipedia or see analysis at respectable web sites, you'll realize, that Brazil,USA and India rank first in spam distribution, while Russia is only ten. That is why, I guess, your literary assumption about a possible «spam cold war» between USA and Russia has no evidence.:)))

Well, actually the Kaspersky team is quite competent and reliable. The problem is that the Russians use not only their software.
