Study: Spammers, Virus Writers Getting Chummy

A new MessageLabs report says more than 86% of the E-mail it sampled in June was spam--and nearly one in 10 contained a virus.

I missed that story, but 1 in 10 spam containing a virus doesn't supprise me. Spammers are slime. I don't think I am getting that number of spam viruses, but they are more likely to be easily blocked at the ISP. And of course I don't investigate each of my spams to see if it has a virus. Not using Outlook is nice.
