In the past week, EdgeWave’s iGuard team rated over 34,000 URLs this past week. The entertainment category had a significant uptick in traffic with most being related to local holiday events. We also see many professional sites that are likely related to the holiday shopping period.
From the spam side, ePrism blocked 525,954,021 spam messages last week. Yesterday alone 61,676,373 were blocked. We have seen some specific campaigns targeting iPhone users and holiday shoppers.
Earlier in the week, I noted that the Sony attack was may NOT be from the North Korean government. We should keep in mind that Scriptkiddie hackers typically do this type of attack and could have destroyed the system in an attempt to cover their tracks.
