Internet fraud continues to be a challenge in the business world. This study was undertaken to expand upon a previous study and determine if undergraduate students are at a similar cyber security risk. Findings suggest that spam and phishing are becoming less problematic for the undergraduate population. During the five-year study period, spam decreased by 38%, the volume of phishing attacks decreased by 36%, and by 2012, only 4% of students reported receiving phishing attacks. It could be surmised that improved spam filters, proactive education, and responsible student behavior may be driving this positive trend.
