Spam Rate Drops Below 50%

Spam has dropped to its lowest rate in twelve years? I haven't really noticed a difference, do you feel like you are getting less spam?

According to the latest Symantec Intelligence Report, the overall spam rate has dropped to 49.7 percent, the first time a figure this low has been recorded since September 2003. Phishing rates and email-based malware were also down this month. It's not all good news though as there were 57.6 million new malware variants created in June, up from 44.5 million pieces of malware created in May and 29.2 million in April.
