Spam distributors - Poland with the dirty dozen....
« on: April 11, 2007, 01:37:18 PM »
Hi malware fighters,

According to Sophos: http://www.sophos.com/pressoffice/news/articles/2007/04/dirtydozapr07.html Poland has taken place 3 as spam forwarding nation. Polish users should be made aware by Polish authorities of the dangers of to-days' Internet, and taught more secure practices. Spim - Spam; Spim - Spam..

I'm surprised at the improvement, a drop out of the top 10, perhaps anti-spam legislation is having an effect or more likely others are just growing faster ;D

The UK, which sat in tenth place during Q1 2006, has managed to bypass being named and shamed, occupying 13th place and accounting for 2.2% of all spam relayed.

However, Europe is top of the Continental Spam league.

Hi DavidR,

That is all continental news. Your home situation is an enormous approvement. Cheers to the spam-cullers,
but the bad news on the overall picture is that very soon from now the total amount of spam will have outnumbered the total number of sollicited mail, and that is a bad omen.

Or maybe it's all that copper wire. Hard to run spam shops on dial up connections...

Hi OrangeCrate,

Ok, copper wire, but as they say: "there is no virtue of anything in notepad, what was not first scribbled down using a pencil",
