More spam coming from Europe than from US

Posted on Thursday, July 26 2007 @ 08:27:25 CEST by

A report from security firm Sophos reveals both the U.S. and China are ranking very high on the spam relaying countries list. Individual European countries don't rank that high but when you put them all together they account for even more spam-relaying than the U.S.:
The U.S. continues to relay more spam than any other nation accounting for 19.6% of global spam.

Europe now has six entries in the Dirty Dozen, which when combined, account for even more spam-relaying than the U.S. The overall global volume of spam rose by 9% during the second quarter, when compared to the same period in 2006.

After the U.S. and China, South Korea ranked third with 6.5%, followed by Poland with 4.8%, Germany 4.2%, Brazil 4.1%, France 3.3%, Russia 3.1%, Turkey 2.9%, the U.K. 2.8%, Italy 2.8% and India 2.5%.

Sophos senior security consultant Carole Theriault said that while the U.S. remains the top spam dog, there results show an urgent need for countries to join together and take global action.

"Once a machine is compromised, it is often used to send out spam for a variety of campaigns," she said.
