Google Spam Map

Where Spam Originates

Google's e-mail and web security and archiving service Postini has created a Spam Threat Map. The map shows where e-mail spam messages are originating in real time (although the map itself doesn't appear to be real-time).

It seems that many of those Nigerians wanting to give me money don't actually come from Nigeria. In fact according to the map Europe and India seem to be two of the biggest sources of the spam clogging up my e-mail service.
