Cloudmark's 14Q1 Global Messaging Threat Report

Following the arrest last fall of Dmitry Fedotov, cybercriminals have reverted to a more old fashioned way of distributing malware: email spam. Cloudmark has recently seen spam in the US and UK falsely notifying recipients of a friend’s death or cancer diagnosis in order to shock users into installing trojans. Meanwhile on the mobile front, Indian regulator TRAI appears to have met with marked success in its attempts to curb SMS spam.
