Security researchers at San Diego-based Akonix Systems Inc., a provider of instant messaging security and compliance products, have uncovered 170 IM threats this year—an increase of 73 percent from the same time period in 2006.

The company's IM Security Center researchers tracked 20 malicious code attacks over IM networks during the month of May, Akonix officials said. Altogether, the number of IM threats found by the company this year represents an average of more than one IM attack a day.
