NewScientist published an interesting graphic showing a timeline of spam activities and events. A couple of notable takeaways from this graphic:
  • Early indicators are that legal enforcement is slowing to possibly leveling the growth of spam. It is clear that major enforcement wins cause a significant decline in spam for a short period of time. It will be interesting to see if continued enforcement happens and if it will force an overall decline.

  • User education may have hit its limits. With only .1% of the users actually clicking on the link in the e-mail, it is doubtful that a more intensive education effort could reduce that percentage significantly.
