China more infected than US

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. However solutions might actually be found in the default language of the computer on which the malware has been written. The other problem is politics. The FBI can’t quite impose U.S. laws in different countries so their hands are tied.
