DavidGilbert99 writes "Monty Python once sung about Spam, lovely Spam, wonderful Spam. However it's unlike that any of the recipients oft he 2.2 billion spam emails sent in 2012 would have agreed with them.

The volume of spam and malicious emails being sent out today means that just one out of every five emails sent is legitimate with cyber criminals increasing the sophistication of their attacks, and crafting emails to target specific individuals and specific events."
