Spam Crisis in China


At the UAB Spam Data Mine, we continue to see that MOST of the spam we receive has ties to China. As an experiment this morning I looked at 37,825 URLs received in spam on Thursday. These boiled down to 687 domain names, of which 207 ended in ".cn". I decided to expand the scope of my query, and looked at all the spam from May 1 until June 18, 2009.
