DID YOU KNOW?
That South Korea is responsible for roughly 1/5 of the spam out there? Of course the country that is responsible for the single-largest portion of that ever so annoying phenomenon? The U.S.:
In October, 42.5 percent of all spam originated in the United States, according to a report released Monday by Commtouch Spam Detection Center, which analyzed hundreds of millions of unsolicited messages.But China is in the thick of things as well:
China held onto its top ranking as the country that hosted the most Web sites referenced in the content of the spam. Among the 2.55 million referenced URLs in spam, China accounted for nearly 39 percent, followed by the United States with 31 percent, and South Korea with 21 percent.
