The new King of Spam

http://arstechnica.com/news.ars/post...g-of-spam.html

Europe is now the "king of spam," and is responsible for 44 percent of all spam sent worldwide, according to Symantec. The company discussed the findings in its monthly State of Spam (PDF) report, pointing out that Europe has been producing significantly more spam than the US for three months now, and suggesting that the cause could be widely-available broadband. This is a scary trend, considering how much spam originates from North America; Symantec said that as recently as November 2007, Europe was only responsible for 30.6 percent of all spam in the world while North America was responsible for 46 percent (it is now down to 35.1 percent). This reversal is one that security firm Sophos noted in April of last year. But this shift isn't because countries in North America are sending less spam than before—the overall volume of spam is still rising, consuming 78.5 percent of all e-mail traffic last month.

Europe's spam growth is simply outpacing the rest of the world, which Symantec says is likely due to the proliferation of high-speed Internet access across the continent. "This sizeable increase in spam appearing to originate from Europe is significant but not altogether surprising when you consider the massive growth of broadband users in Europe in the last few years," reads the report. "This phenomenal growth in percent spam originating in Europe may also be considered when you look at countries ranked by broadband subscribers per 100 inhabitants—European countries take eight of the top ten places."


Source: Symantec The Symantec report also delved into other areas where spam is changing, including the predictable upswing in Valentine's Day-related spam this time of year and those advertising tax refunds. These don't actually deliver on their promises, of course—instead, they direct the user around and attempt to trick them into handing over personal information before saying that the offer cannot be completed.

Botnets, such as the one created by the infamous Storm Worm, are still the most "prevalent distribution method" for spam, Symantec European marketing manager Fredrik Sjostedt told CNet. Of course, this ties directly into the proliferation of broadband and overall spam growth, because better access to high-speed Internet allows the same number of bots to simply do a higher volume of work. "We've moved away from traditional, individual spammers, to loosely tied groups of spam senders, malware coders, and people selling access to botnets."

Re: The new King of Spam

So all these miraculous productivity increases that Bush boast about don't even extend to Spam?
