Unsolicited e-mails continue to plague Europeans and account for between 50 and 80% of all messages sent to mail inboxes. Yesterday, an EU Commissioner called on their governments to step up their fight against spam, spyware and other illegal online activities and implement EU rules to improve Internet safety. Duh.
An EU report found that only two EU nations — the Netherlands and Finland — were making progress with enforcing the 2002 law to crack down on spam.
Here’s the last piece of news that is not surprising:
The biggest culprit of EU spam remains the United States, which accounts for 21.6% of spam coming into the 25-nation EU. China is the second-biggest producer with 13.4%, while EU member France is third with 6.3%.
