Submission + - Chinese City Tops Malicious Email List (

Stephen Samuel writes: "The Chinese city of Shaoxing has earned the dubious honour of being the source of more malicious email (21.3%) than any country, other than, of course, China(28.2%) itself — although Romania came a close second at 21.1%. With the study finding that key targets of the email were 'experts in Asian defence policy and human rights activists,' it may be hard for the Chinese government to plausibly deny involvement. The study was done by Semantic while helping Google investigate suspected hacking attacks."
