The proportion of spam in total email traffic in November amounted to 72.5% – almost 10 percentage points higher than in November 2012 when Kaspersky Lab recorded a figure of 62.9%. Most malicious attachments were recorded in the UK, with 12.3% of all mail antivirus detections triggered. An increase of 2.4 percentage points over the month saw the UK overtake Germany (11.2%) and the USA (10%).

The leading types of organization targeted by phishers were unchanged, with social networks (26.9%), email services (19.2%) and search engines (16.5%) making up the top three. Financial and e-payment organizations (16.1%) remained in fourth place, but the proportion of attacks on these organizations continues to grow – rising in November by 0.7 percentage points. Once again the Australia and New Zealand Banking Group was targeted with phishing pages imitating the organization’s official site.
