a series of at least 100,000 genuine spam emails using West Coast Labs real-time spam feed.
This white paper explains what makes spam such an unbearable problem and how spamming tactics are evolving daily to beat anti-spam software.

Attacks on financial services institutions are growing in both quantity and sophistication. Our new State of the Internet/Security report studies criminal behavior across this advanced and expansive financial services attack economy: from a popular authentication mechanism for staging credential stuffing attacks to the use of stolen identities to cash out ill-gotten gains. The report identifies leading DDoS and application-layer attack vectors, lucrative phishing variants, and how criminals stage decoy attacks to distract from their real targets. Attacks that prove successful in financial services often move on to other industries. Download the report, and see what petabytes of data tell us.
