Group Estimates 9 Out Of 10 E-Mails Are Spam
U.S. e-mail security company Postini estimates that nearly every 9 out of 10 e-mails that are sent, are nothing more than spam. We're sure many of you already assumed as much, and we at Hothardware see not shortage of it ourselves. According to the company, 7 billion spam e-mails were sent worldwide this month, compared to just 2.5 billion in June. Spamhaus, a body that tracks the spam problem, estimates that the majority of spam is coming from about 200 illegal gangs, with the U.S., Poland, and China contributing to most of it.
