2016 has seen a dramatic resurgence in spam. Some of this is due to an increase in BUCE (Bulk Unsolicited Commercial Email) Many businesses now seem to consider this an acceptable way of promoting their business. Phishing emails still target mostly Microsoft Windows, although there does seem to be a trend towards targeting mobile devices.

For domains in the PGTS group, the USA has put in a solid performance, contributing 16.8% of total spam and reclaimed their rightful gold medal position, at the top of the spam league, clearly ahead of China at 10.6%. Viet Nam at 8% has been pushed off the podium by India which came in with 8.9% to claim bronze. The top three countries contributed 36.3% of all spam.
