Google Says Infected Spam Is Getting Worse

On its enterprise blog on Tuesday, Google plans to report that it saw more infectious spam messages in July than any month so far this year.
According to data gathered by Google's Postini corporate e-mail security service, the volume of e-mail virus attacks peaked at almost 10 million on a single day, July 24.
That kind of volume, six to seven times what's typical, means spam messages are getting through someone's defenses and turning recipients' machines into zombies, said Sundar Raghavan, a product marketing manager with the Google Apps Security & Compliance team.
