San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
- The volume of email spam sent from Korea jumped nearly
39 percent last week over the previous week, according to
worldwide spam patterns tracked by SpamIQ, the global spam
reporting system from Mailshell, the leading provider of
traffic reputation, anti-spam and anti-phishing engines
for OEMs. Vietnam showed nearly a 30 percent increase last
week as well, making it the second largest increase worldwide
from any country that accounted for at least five percent
of global spam. The majority of the spam messages, both
from Korea and Vietnam, were in English.
Mailshell's OEM partners use SpamIQ reports
to quantify the detection rates of their products, to create
profiles of spam received by their end users and to identify
new attack vectors. The company's software engines help
its OEM partners, including McAfee, CA, Check Point, NETGEAR,
Webroot, AVG, Eset and others, immediately generate new
revenue, up-sell existing products to new customers and
minimize related engineering and support costs. For more
