One new spam site every 3 seconds

Posted on Monday, April 21 2008 @ 04:08:11 CEST by

IT News has some interesting figures from security firm Sophos. They claim 23,000 new spam sites are created every day, that equates to about one spam site every three seconds. The US and Russia still take the lead in the spam mail market but for the first time Turkey is now ranked third:
Compromised computers in Turkey are now responsible for relaying 5.9 percent of the world's junk email, compared to 3.8 percent in the final quarter of 2007.

The US and Russia maintained first and second place respectively, but both countries managed to reduce their contribution to the worldwide spam problem compared to the final three months of 2007.

However, the number of spam messages sent from compromised Russian computers has more than doubled over the past year.

In the first quarter of 2007, Russia was in tenth position in the chart, relaying just three per cent of the world’s spam. Today this figure stands at 7.4 percent.

Elsewhere in the chart, the UK is at number 10 with 3.4 percent of all spam, up from 2.5 percent and 12th place in the final quarter of 2007.

"Turkey's appearance in the top three makes for an interesting realignment so early in the year," said Carole Theriault, senior security consultant at Sophos.
