United States Overtakes China in Infected Websites

In a recent report from Sophos, it appears that the US has overtaken China as the country hosting the most infected websites. If you believe the report, the growth of US-based infected websites has been phenomenal - from approximately 25% in 2007 to about 50% in the first 3 months of 2008. Part of the reason for the dubious distinction of holding top spot is that China is making progress in cleaning up its infected sites.

Another interesting trend in the report is the drop of infected emails - only one infected email in over 2500 compared to one in 909 in 2007. This coincides with the increase in infected websites where one infected webpage is discovered and blocked every 5 sec in 2008 compared with 14 sec in 2007.
