The U.S. leads a list of ‘Dirty Dozen’ spam-relaying countries, whilst Australasia remains well outside it, according to security company, Sophos.

Sophos has in its latest report named the top twelve spam relaying countries over the first quarter of 2006.

Sophos scanned all spam messages received in the company’s global network of spam traps and has revealed that while the United States has continued to make good progress in its efforts to reduce spam-relaying statistics, there is still more spam sent from US computers than any other nation. However as a continent, North America is now close to being overtaken by Europe, with both lying behind Asia in terms of spam relayed.

Australasia (so far) remains well outside the ‘named and shamed’ list, with Australia and New Zealand occupying the twenty-third and fifty-third positions respectively.

1. United States 23.1%
