Spam volumes are in decline. Spam is now more carefully targeted than it was in the heady days of the 2013 Spam Peak. Phishing emails are finely crafted to bypass Bayesian filters and make clever use of social engineering to fool users. Malevolent payloads are still mostly aimed at Microsoft products, but there are also many phishing emails constructed to "trick" users into "clicking" links in emails. There are small number of very sophisticated phishing emails which are Operating system agnostic.

For domains in the PGTS group, Viet Nam has pipped USA as the world leader contributing 14.2% of total SPAM. USA has slipped to number 2 at 12.4% and China has put in their usual strong performance for the bronze medal just behind the USA at 11.82%. These top three accounted for 38.4% of total SPAM.
