Shaoxing is the maleware capital of the world in March 2010.



2010, March 31


According to Symantec's March 2010 MessageLabs Intelligence Report, nearly 30% of all malicious software attacks on the Internet came from China - more than 21% from the city of Shaoxing alone. 16.5% of the cyber attacks came from Taipei (Taiwan) and almost 15% came from London (UK). In March 2010 China was, by far, the country from which most cyber attacks originated, followed by Romania (21%) and the United States of America (almost 14%).

Comment: Maleware, particularly as related to e-mail, has become a major nuisance of the Internet and is threatening its usefulness. Consider this: 90% (!) of all e-mail consists of spam, such as unsolicited advertisement. Only 0.05% of e-mails in March 2010 contained viruses and only 0.02% of the e-mails contained malicious code for phishing. Advertisement has become a main threat to the usefulness of the Internet.
