Spam in your inbox!
Looking at the state of my inbox right now, this is no surprise. According to a new report from Symantec, "92-percent of all e-mails sent across the Web today consist of spam, up from 89-percent one year ago." Did you read that? Up 89 percent?

Spam, spam, spam!

I also found it interesting how the spam messages have changed over the last year:

A year ago, most spam subject lines were related to Barack Obama or Michael Jackson; In June of '10, the World Cup dominated, with BP-related subjects repeatedly popping up during July.

On the bright side, phishing attacks have gone down by 5 percent this year. So there's that. [Source: Engadget.com]
