Shaoxing, China seems to be sending lot of malware to the world. Symantech's Message labs recently published a paper with some interesting statistics:

1. 21.3% of targeted attacks originated from Shaoxing, China, as is Taipei (16.5%) in Taiwan, and London (14.8%) in the UK.

Interestingly, the spammers are using TLS (Transport Layer Security) - popular way of sending email through an encrypted channel. Posted in: #Coffee Room

I am surprised Indonesians are not on the list. they are the ones who gave the world the deadly brontok variants and many more. May be they are not sending in mass numbers but they definitely donate their deadliest works to the computing world.

Russians are not too behind too. Some Russian hacker "firms" are known to openly recruit people who will help them to spread their malwares. they pay per click(on these malware links) and pay in dollars 馃榾

looks like that's more profitable than plain blogging !

Still, China leads! Even most of the attacks on CE were from China. We banned most of the Chinese IP addresses but its easy to bypass them. Its surprising to see Romania rising on the list!

Oh my God! On CE too...!

Seems Chinese are talented in hacking, cracking with viruses and all.

What about Indians. 馃榾
