    Stealthy, targeted cyberattacks via e-mail continue to rise, e-mail security specialist MessageLabs said Wednesday. During March, MessageLabs intercepted 716 e-mail messages that were part of 249 targeted attacks aimed at 216 of its customers, the Gloucester, England-based provider of hosted e-mail filtering services said in a research report. Of the attacks, almost 200 consisted of a single malicious e-mail designed to infiltrate an organization, MessageLabs said.
    "These numbers represent a significant increase when compared to the same period last year when attack rates reached one or two per day," MessageLabs said.
