Thanks to a reader (Thanks Bob), who wrote in this morning asking if we have seen an increase in spam lately, I can personally confirm that yes, I have seen more spam in my inbox lately.

Bob sent us a couple interesting graphics, the first being a graph of how much of a spam increase there has been recently:

Secondly another graph he sent in was an interesting correlation.  It was how many viruses have been blocked by ClamD.

 

As I said, I've noticed a big increase in spam lately in my own personal email as well.  

What about the rest of the readers?  Have you guys experienced similar?

UPDATE:  Several people have wrote in saying they have seen the same thing.  Thank you for writing in.
