Cisco: U.S. No Longer the Spam Leader

Thursday Dec 10th 2009 by Staff

According to Cisco Systems, 2009 was a good year for at least one key reason: the U.S. is no longer the spam capital of the world. Now it's only number two.

Cisco reported 6.6 trillion spam messages originating from the United States in 2009, a 20.3 percent decline from the 2008 mark of 8.3 trillion messages. This year, the United States was eclipsed by Brazil, which took the dubious distinction of the top spamming nation, blasting out 7.7 trillion messages in 2009, up 193 percent from 2008, when Cisco counted 2.7 trillion spam messages originating from Brazil.
