MCLEAN, Virginia, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

In May and the beginning of June 2013, the number of websites infected with
malware increased by more than one third: there are currently 34 percent more
compromised sites listed in Commtouch's GlobalView™ URL filtering database
than in the first quarter of 2013.

The number of phishing sites detected also increased over the same period,
although their growth has been slower (3.6 percent). The increase follows on
the heels of a drastic rise in email spam during the first five months of
2013, much of which is aimed at luring users to malware-infected websites.
