China Becomes World's Second Biggest Spam Target

by Donna Buenaventura / March 19, 2004 2:16 AM PST

China has climbed to the number two spot on the list of spam targets, with over 150 billion spams received in 2003, second only to the United States. The Internet Society of China estimates that one third of all e-mail is spam, according to Xinhua news agency. Chinese officials have targeted the spam problem, calling its anti-Communist messages and pornography subversive. Internet experts have often criticized China as a source of spam sent to other countries.
