According to Kaspersky Lab, more spam was sent from India than anywhere else in the world during the third quarter of 2011.

"The report said that 79.8 percent of email traffic was junk," writes TechEye's Edward Berridge. "Of that, 14.8 percent originated in India, 10.6 percent came from Indonesia, and 9.7 percent from Brazil."

"India is one of the best places for a spammer to set up thanks to the lack of awareness about internet security and anti-spam laws, which had effectively given spammers free reign," Berridge writes.
