Vietnam Primary Source of Spam in November

Vietnam is now responsible for more than 10% of the worlds spam, according to threat analysis from managed security firm, Network Box. November saw malware threat levels remain consistently high with Vietnam taking the number one spam spot from last month’s chart topper, Brazil.

The level of spam originating from Vietnam has increased by 3.4 per cent: it now accounts for 10.9 per cent of worldwide spam production, beating Brazil into second place (Brazil’s spam production levels have dropped to 8.3 per cent since October). Korea still occupies the third position in the charts, seeing an increase in spam production of 1.5 per cent, to 7.07 per cent.
