Europe spam tide on the rise

The US has long been in the lead, and still is, when it comes to amount of spam in the email. But according to a new Commtouch report, Europe is seeing a big surge in spam.

Way to go Europe!

Note that the US held fairly steady, so the increase in Europe points to a general increase on the global level. This is bad for us end users, and fantastic for all of those companies who are "blocking" spam (the spam still gets sent, it is just a matter of how much of it you need to manually go through in your inbox) since they make money from this increase.a
