IBM: Phishing attacks reach new record level

IBM’s Global Business Security Index indicates a sharp increase in phishing and virus attacks for the month of May. According to the report, the number of phishing attacks increased by 226 percent, substantially exceeding the previous peak point the company had recorded last January. According to the company, more than 30 percent of emails contained some form of virus, while the amount of spam retreated to “just” 68.7 percent of all inbound email traffic. (THG)
