Botnet, Trojan Activity Increased in February

Trojan-based attacks continue to be the biggest malware threat in February, but PDF exploits aren’t far behind, according to several security reports.

About 1 in 290 e-mails in February were malicious, making the month one of the most prolific periods for the threats, according to Symantec’s February 2011 MessageLabs Intelligence Report. The global ratio of spam in e-mail traffic was 81.3 percent, an increase of 2.7 percent since January, the report found. The recent decline in spam appears to have reversed for the time being, according to the report.

Remember – just because the email says it’s from someone you know, doesn’t mean he or she sent  you OMG PICS FROM YOUR’RE LAST SUMMER VACATION!!!!
