[tgdaily] The most spammed country in the world? Switzerland.

Chicago (IL) – You may be complaining about the number of spam emails finding their way to your email account every day, but it may come as a surprise to you that the U.S. is actually not the most targeted country by spammers: According to a report released to today, Swiss users receive 10% more of spam than the average Internet user – and 23% more than U.S. users.

If we believe the numbers released by MessageLabs, then we are on a slight upward curve of spam that is sent globally. 76.5% of all emails in June were found to be spam by the security firm, while the global average over the past six months was 74.5%. However, there is a huge difference in spam that is sent to different countries and industries.

MessageLabs said that 84.8% of emails in Switzerland were spam, surpassing the traditional leader in this category, Hong Kong (82.6%). The top 5 is rounded out by France (82.1%), Israel (80.1%) and Austria (79.6%). The share in the U.S. was 68.8%, Canada’s 77.8% and UK’s 74.3%.

Manufacturing is apparently the most targeted by spammers (82.9%), followed by education (80.4%) and retail (80.1%). The financial sector’s share was at just 71.5%.

MessageLabs also found virus distribution rebounding to one virus in 133.9 emails and the phishing was flat at 1 in 277.2 cases.

There's a big market for penis enlargement over there.

EDIT: It's a joke! I'm sure you Swiss have huge tools.

I don't get junk mail in my important e-mail. I use one e-mail address for signing up for things online and such, and the other is for family and my bank and everything. I didn't even give OCN my good e-mail address when I signed up a year and a couple months ago.

Yeah, I went over there when I was 6 for my uncles wedding.

I had some of the chocolate, and I was like a kid in a candy store, that was really a room in an even bigger candy store.
