Submission + - Malware capital of the world is Shaoxing, China (zdnet.com)

suraj.sun writes: Symantec announced on Monday that Shaoxing, China was malware capital of the world last month. That’s just one of the takeaways in the company’s March 2010 MessageLabs Intelligence Report, an analysis of the origins of targeted attacks and malicious emails used to gain access to sensitive corporate data.

According to Symantec’s research, nearly 30 percent of all malicious attacks came from China — with 21.3 percent from Shaoxing alone. Runner-up to the crown was Taipei, at 16.5 percent, with London taking the bronze at 14.8 percent.

On a national scale, China trumped all, followed by Romania, with 21.1 percent of attempted attacks, and the United States, with 13.8 percent.
