Instant messaging attacks spike in April

Instant messaging attacks leapt 162 percent in April according to security firm Akonix. The company tracked 21 new malicious code attacks over the month.

The jump accompanies a boom in take-up of enterprise unified communications systems (UC) over the past few months, a fact that is unlikely to be a mere coincidence, Akonix said.

UC systems are designed to bring together all a company's communications systems onto a common Internet protocol (IP) infrastructure, and often include an IM service.
