Map: A World Full of Spam
Pinpointing the origin of 1 billion spam messages shows global spam hotspots.
by Dave Mosher

Between 2005 and 2006, the number of unsolicited e-mails increased 147 percent, says Postini Inc., the world’s largest spam-filtering company. This means that for each welcome e-mail, 14 junk messages show up too. To visualize the intensity of attacks, Postini mapped the suspected origins of 1,010,186,128 spam e-mails intercepted on December 18, 2006 (above).

Here for the map and the article.

What I like about this article more than anything else is if they could pin point the people doing the SPAM. I can't remember where I read it but there was a guy in the UK who got paid to send out something like 200k worth of SPAM email every month.

It's gotta be horrible to be hated more than attorneys. :whistling:
