Virus-infected email hits rock bottom

The overall proportion of infected email has dropped to an all time low of just one in 300 (0.33 per cent), Sophos reports. But the move from mass mailing in favour of more subtle and menacing Trojan assaults, targeted at just a small group of users, meant the number of new threats shot up. Sophos recorded 4,080 new threats in September, compared with just 1,998 in August 2006.

It's true! I haven't seen a virus or worm in my junk mail folder for months!
