Submission + - Egyptian spam vanishes after internet shutdown (sophos.com)

An anonymous reader writes: Is there a silver lining to the shutdown of internet services in Egypt?

Security boffins at Sophos would like you to think so, reporting that spam received from Egyptian IP addresses has dropped more than 85% in the last 48 hours.

However, the firm does not believe that internet users are likely to spot a drop in the spam levels seen in their email inbox.
