Since we installed new spam filters last week, 72% of received email was identified as spam. 1.6% contained a virus or other malicious software.
The statistics are actually much worse, because that figure represents only 1 attempted email delivery in 35. We reject the other 34 before they’ve even started trying to send email.
So if you think you see a lot of spam, imagine 35 times as much! And imagine how much Internet traffic is “wasted”.
Most of the malicious email was phishing — that is, attempts to fool you into revealing your passwords or credit card details.
If you’re a Prussia.Net Internet hosting client and need assistance filtering spam before you see it, please visit out Support Centre and open a new Ticket under “Hosting Support”.
