Mid September a sudden rush on a day or two, these match a report from Symantec on an increase in generic polymorphic malware variants which went from 18.5 percent to 72.0 percent of email borne malware for the month (http://www.symanteccloud.com/en/au/globalthreats/charts/virus_monthly)
End of the month a sudden surge in the amount of SPAM being dropped by reputations, along with an increase of mail getting delivered, suggesting that more SPAM was getting through our first line which is based on SPF, reputation, RAV, etc but no where near the levels from 8 months ago, let alone this time last year.
Besides those spikes another average month, mind you with the corleation between SPAM and email malware, and increase in one normaly means and increase in the other.
