Web attacks spike; e-mail attacks down

"Web attacks surged to an all-time high in the first quarter of this year, with no signs of abating, according to a recent study by anti-virus software maker Sophos.

For the first three months of 2008, Sophos identified about 15,000 newly infected Web pages daily. To put that figure in perspective, consider this: In 2007, Sophos discovered and blocked an infected Web page about once every 14 seconds; this year, according to the company, it's doing so about once every five seconds."
