Old-school spam going down, phishing and Web 2.0 attacks going up
Web security firm
warned that security threat levels have remained stable overall, but attackers
are switching away from email inboxes and towards social networking sites and
other Web 2.0 phenomena.
According to the latest MessageLabs Intelligence Report, July was "a month of
victimisation" for high-profile and popular sites and services, with MySpace,
AOL's AIM and
Gmail all being used for attacks.
