The US is currently the top spam sending nation in the world - but for how much longer?
Although the US is currently the top spam sending country in the world, it is
losing ground to China
. A report from security firm Sophos claims that Asia now leads the world in helping to relay spam, with China at the front lines. Because of progressive anti-spam measures in the United States, spammers are forced to shut down and move operations to other countries. Just two years ago, the US was responsible for more than half of all spam sent in the entire world. Eventually, China will overtake the US as the number one spamming nation. While the numbers in the US decrease, spam from nations like Poland, Germany and Spain are beginning to pick up the slack.
The majority of spam sent every day is sent via zombie computers -- infected computers that are often unknowingly under the control of spammers and/or hackers. The United States (23.1%), China (21.9%), South Korea (9.8%), France (4.3%), and Poland (3.8%) make up the top five spam nations.
