Holiday Season Spam up 650%
This article notes that spam this holiday season is up a whopping 650% from this time last year. Though our servers have seen increased activity, we haven't witnessed anything on this level. In fact, resource utilization on our servers still hovers around the bare minimum with the amount of mail passing through our primary mail server up 50% from the summer. Much of this, as the article notes, can be attributed to round-after-round of viruses.
