Regardless of the fact that India is one of the third world countries but the growth of IT and technology is leaping.
In a heavily populated country where everyday dozens of new Internet users are added they usually come unaware of the measures to protect their PCs from malwares, which ultimately fall victim to high profile cyberattackers.
Due to such reasons, Sophos, a security firm, has ranked India the top spam-spewing nation in the world. According to its statistics, of all the emails on the Web 9.3% junk mails are routed from Indian computers, and social networks such as Twitter, Facebook, and Pinterest are top targets for spammers to attack users’ computers.
Once attackers gain control of computers they send junk emails from an actual user’s behalf to engage more people into this in order to get more PCs infected.
Graham Cluley who is a senior consultant at Sophos said, “The latest stats show that, as more first-time internet users get online in growing economies, they are not taking measures to block the malware infections that turn their PCs into spam-spewing zombies.”
The US comes second in the list with its 8.3% spam rate and Samsung’s home South Korea is at third spot with 5.7%.
