The latest report out of Postini showed a nearly 60% increase in spam over the last three months.
So, Bill Gates is still very wrong, and spammers got a little jump start on the holiday season. All the stock spam could be the reason the market hasn’t plummeted yet either. Maybe spammers should hit the mortgage market again, or hell…start selling properties.
UPDATE: Since the US is still the top spam producing country, and Postini postulates that much of the spam is coming from zombied machines, we can all cringe next time some goof takes credit for our broadband penetration rates.
