Mallware from China and Spam from Poland


According to Symantec, Beijing is the place with most malware infected computers, almost 5% of world's total. Security Company Sophos reports that China has outnumbered U.S.A. in Web pages that secretly install malicious programs that steal information and send spam.

Data shows that Americans and other non-British English speakers produce more than 33% of world total, China produces 30%, Brazil 14.2% and Russia 4.1%.

Sophos also reported that Europe produces most spam; one Polish Internet service provider is held accountable for 5% of the worlds spam.

One of the main problems is that Cybercrime is hard to track, because it basically comes from everywhere and goes everywhere.
