Google Boasts About Winning the War on Spam
Google is pretty proud of its record on fighting spam and phishing attacks. The company published a blog post on Friday boasting about its continued efforts to stop phishing and spam emails from getting through. According to Google, the majority of non-spam email that Gmail users see in their inboxes is authenticated with standards designed to fight phishing. "91.4% of non-spam emails sent to Gmail users come from authenticated senders, which helps Gmail filter billions of impersonating email messages a year from entering our users’ inboxes," explained Elie Bursztein and Vijay Eranti, Google security researchers, in the blog post.
