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 ;)
