Infected Windows PCs Now Source Of 80% Of Spam

PerryMason Re:Is this suprising? (778 comments)

Yes it is surprising. Traditionally spam has come from mail servers that were setup as open relays (by accident or design) but nowadays its coming from Windows desktop machines with viruses which setup their own mail servers. Combine that with the growing prevalence of broadband home connections and spam is just getting worse and worse.
