Geeky Link of the day
http://blogs.technet.com/antimalware/

The Microsoft Anti-Malware guys. It's fascinating reading, if you're the sort of person who would be fascinated by it.

From that site:

In our recently published Security Intelligence Report (http://www.microsoft.com/security/portal/sir.aspx *) it was found that around 96% of inbound messages to Exchange Hosted Services were blocked because they had spam on them. Spam all over them. The SIR also found that approximately 80% of all spam that (tries to) go through Hotmail is from a botnet of some sort.

I'm not really surprised - their numbers aren't far from mine. For my personal mailbox, if I discount the various mailing lists I subscribe to, less than 0.5% of my email is legitimate. Yes, 99.5% is spam.
