According to a study by Trend Micro, 20 percent of the smap emails originated from India in the first quarter of March 31, 2012.

According to the report,”The quarter’s top spam-sending countries included India at 20 %, Indonesia at 13 %, South Korea at 12 % and Russia at 10 %.”

“The number of targeted attacks has dramatically increased. Unlike largely indiscriminate attacks that focus on stealing credit card and banking information associated with cybercrime, targeted attacks noticeably differ and are better characterised as ‘cyber espionage’,” Trend Micro Country Manager India and SAARC Amit Nath said.

The report also added that the cyber criminals ar now more active and they try to fool internet users by this type of fake emails and offers. Report also added that the increasing use of smartphones leads to this increasing cyber crimes.

“With the increased use of smartphones for Internet access and the huge Android user base, the increase in attacks targeting the platform is thus not surprising,” the report said.
