US tops global spamming charts

The US relays more spam than any other country, according to malware specialists Sophos.

Nearly a quarter of all spam was sent from computers in the US during the past six months, compared to just over 20 per cent from China and Hong Kong. The UK was tenth in the list, contributing 1.9 per cent of the world's spam.

"We are seeing spammers being successfully brought to justice in the US, but it's important to remember that they can be based anywhere in the world," said Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos. US tops global spamming charts -
