While email-borne malware and viruses increased dramatically in May, overall spam volumes remained flat, according to the monthly threat analysis from AppRiver. Virus and malware activity increased in May, sporadically hitting peaks of more than 10 million pieces per day, AppRiver researchers said in its monthly threat-landscape report. Scammers took advantage of major news events to push out new pieces of malware while cyber-attackers continued to target large companies in May, according to AppRiver’s latest Threat and Spamscape report released June 15.
