It seems as though any time of the year is spam time, at least as far as cyber criminals are concerned. During the festive period, we are less likely to be diligent about the emails we receive, especially if they offer something special such as a bargain. All the more reason to spread the word that hackers are always at work, finding new and creative ways to commit cyber crime.
Along with good tidings, the holiday season is bringing a preponderance of spam, according to a post from Cyren. Email with the word "Christmas" in the subject bar is almost entirely commercial or criminal, the Internet security technology company reported.
