Spam email is on the wane. And no one on God’s green Earth is going to miss it.
The share of spam in email traffic decreased steadily throughout 2012 to hit a five year low, an unprecedented decrease. The main reason behind the decrease in spam volume is the overall heightened level of anti-spam protection, says the Moscow based junk mail and cyber crime fighting Kaspersky Lab.
Spam filters are now in place on just about every email system, reducing the amount of spam reaching user accounts, both personal and corporate, to a bare minimum. Spam is becoming ineffective not only because we’re getting wise to it, but because software security engineers from the U.S. to Russia are getting better at playing defense.
