Mikko Hypponen Talks Spam With the BBC

F-Secure’s Chief Research Officer and — according to information leaked by Wikileaks — infosec rock star, Mikko Hypponen appeared on BBC’s Newshour today to discuss the new “spam choking” initiative.

Mikko told the BBC, “One of the reasons spammers are moving to the web is that email filtering is getting better and better. Spam is being sent more than ever in history. Yet people see less of it.”

It’s three minutes and three seconds and manages to include a little Monty Python and lots of surprising information. You can listen to it now: Click here, you’ll be linked to a MP3 of the segment.
