Kaspersky are considered a reliable company but still their findings sound unreal to me. I am not saying they are lying but maybe their methodology is not perfect, or I don’t know yet. October is an active month for business, so it sounds strange to have a drop in spam levels.

I also feel the same way, Kim. We also have to realize that this is just Kaspersky. There are still hundreds of anti-malware and anti-virus software systems out there. Of course, we cannot remove the idea that this may be a type of promotion, you know, a way of telling us that their software works (call it mind conditioning or subliminal messaging). As far as I can tell, know, and feel, spam is still very much alive, and there’s no letting up. To make things worse, we have phishing, spoofing, and a variety of other e-mail crimes. All we have to do is to read the other blog posts to figure out what they are.

Well, this is just one of the many spam studies out there. I prefer to believe my own experience, which is telling me that perhaps spam is much easier to control now. Most, if not all of the e-mail platforms, already have counter measures to reduce the chances of having the mail compromised or receiving spam. Now, besides using the filters, you can also simply click Report Spam. That would then redirect any mail from the same address to the Junk Mail folder. Of course, there’s still needs to be done, but at least we’re moving in the right direction.
