Spam dominated email during July

Almost 90 per cent of all emails scanned by security company SoftScan in the month of July were spam, the company has revealed.

SoftScan acknowledges that the percentage increase in spam last month is due to less legitimate email being sent as many users are on holiday, rather than an actual increase in spam, but the company points out the dangers for users without spam protection.

"It's not just the extended coffee breaks sharing holiday snaps that cut into productivity when users come back to work," said Bo Engelbrechtsen, corporate communications manager at SoftScan. "Clearing the average inbox of junk mail can take quite a time and when you factor in the additional storage space it took up during the holiday period, it's easy to see that spam costs businesses dearly."
