Russia Moving Up In Spam World

There was a dramatic rise in spam emanating from Russia in the fourth quarter of 2007, according to a study released this week by Sophos.

The US still holds the lead as the source of at least 21.3%, or one in five, of all the world's spam messages. But Russia jumped up into second place at 8.3%. That puts Asia and Europe combined as larger spam generators than the US alone.

Other key players were China, including Hong Kong, Brazil, South Korea, Turkey and Italy.
