Developing Countries Most Impacted By Spam

from the forget-food,-send-filters dept

While many more people are beginning to realize that the spam situation finally seems to be at least somewhat under control for most end-users — it’s still causing problems in some areas. A new study is suggesting that developing nations are the hardest hit by spam, mainly because they “lack the knowledge, technology and money to effectively combat the growing flow of junk e-mail over their domestic communication networks.” Of course, it seems like this should be a relatively simple situation to fix — as spam solutions elsewhere should be easily transferable to these developing nations, helping them take care of their problems as well.
