The battle against computer spam and cyber-attacks looks set to continue against both new threats and a range of tried-and-tested methods, according to a report on the latest security activity.

The quarterly McAfee Labs Threats Report, released today by Intel Security, found that over six trillion spam messages were sent across the world in just the first three months of 2015, illustrating the sheer scale of the problem facing computer users across the world.

Overall, McAfee Labs reported seeing 362 attacks every minute – equivalent to six every second.

Our CTO Mark Kedgley comments: “Phishing attacks are by no means a new threat, however, they prevail because they continue to be successful. A two-pronged approach is the only way to defend against phishing attacks – get layered defences in place (don’t overlook the newer Microsoft features like EMET and AppLocker) but back it up with real-time host intrusion detection through File Integrity Monitoring (FIM), ensuring that if a cyber-attack proves successful at the very least you get to know about it.”
