ISPs Help UK Drop out of Top 10 Email SPAM Producing Countries Chart

Posted: 02nd Oct, 2010 By: MarkJ
email spam 2010 statisticsThe latest quarterly (July to September 2010) internet malware report from Panda Security has revealed that 95% of email in circulation is still SPAM (i.e. junk marketing messages). In this period, the Top 10 countries were responsible for 55% of all spam in circulation. Happily the UK has managed to drop out of this list, thanks in part to tougher ISP controls (e.g. blocking port 25).

The global distribution of infections by other forms of malicious software continues to be another problem. Some 55.37% of all malware comes in the form of Trojans, 23.43% are Viruses, while Worms make up 12.17% and 7.51% is Adware.

The Panda Security Report said:

"The truth is, the situation regarding spam has not improved either. As we always insist, cyber-crooks are constantly looking for as many ways as possible for spam to reach its target, and as security solutions become able to detect them, the techniques used change.

Often we wonder how victims continue to fall for these ruses, as the criminals don’t waste too much time with the design or text of these messages. They do however put effort into improving the methods of distribution, and are even sending spam in mp3 files.

There are no real surprises compared with the last quarter. Perhaps what is most interesting is that the United Kingdom has disappeared (for the moment at least) from the ranking. They must be doing something that has helped keep them out of the top ten."

The report claims that 34% of UK computers are infected with some form of malware, placing us 12th in the list (Taiwan comes top with 50%). In global terms, for every ten potential victims that receive a Trojan, five are infected. It would be useful to know how many of this 50% finally fall victim to financial fraud or theft.
