Kaspersky’s Spam and Phishing Q3 Report

In Q3 of 2015, the percentage of spam in email traffic accounted for 54.2%, a 0.8 p.p. drop from the previous quarter. The Top 3 biggest sources of spam distributed worldwide were: the US (15.3%), Vietnam (8.4%) and China (7.2%).

A particular feature of Q3 was a new trick used in phishing emails – in order to bypass spam filters they placed the text of the email and fraudulent link in an attached PDF document rather than in the message body.
