Recent decrease in Reputation Filtering

Unanswered Question
Nov 14th, 2007

Beginning yesterday (Nov 13) at about 17:00 eastern time, we have seen a drastic decrease in messages stopped by Reputation Filtering and an large increase in Spam Detected. The drop is from about 97% to 89%. Spam Detected has risen from 1.4% to 7.6%

Anyone else seeing this occur? We are using V5.1.2 of AsyncOS.

I have this problem too.

After 24 hours, the rejected message percent returned to their normal (excellent) levels.

The efforts of security researchers have resulted in Mc Colo's hosting service being stopped, and this has resulted in far less spam being sent. :) However, it won't last long. Witihin a couple of wweks, the spam levels will be back to usual...

Which is about now.. I can point to www.senderbase.org and more specifically to : http://www.senderbase.org/home/detail_spam_volume

looks like spam has returned to its "normal" volumes.
