Huge spike in virus activity

I know many of you that read this blog are probably aware of the latest viruses in the wild, but I wanted to clue you in to just how bad it is right now.

I have all of my company’s email filtered through Frontbridge. They do dual virus scans and spam scans before the mail is allowed into my environment. Well my userbase is fairly small (250-300 mailboxes) and in the last 5 months, we’ve received 37 thousand viruses.

This month. Over 150 thousand already.

The output is amazing. I’ve also had internet outtages on my Comcast cable, and my buddy Mike has had extreme slowness on his cable system. This this is really causing congestion out there, so be aware.

How many of you are seeing the same thing?
