IT security and data protection firm Sophos has published its latest 'Dirty Dozen' report of spam-relaying countries for the third quarter of 2012. Since the previous quarter, India has grown its lead at the top of the hall of shame, and now relays 16.1 percent of all spam captured in SophosLabs’ global network of spam traps.
The U.S., which was once a permanent fixture as the leading superpower in the spam stakes and last topped the table in the same period a year ago, has risen one place since last quarter and now relays one in 15 of all spam emails.
The UK, which has managed to remain out of the top 12 spam-relaying countries for the last four consecutive quarters (having last appeared in April - June 2011), makes a return to the list, in twelfth place.
This slideshow features the top 12 spam-relaying countries for July to September 2012, according to Sophos.
