China Popular For Hosting Spammed Sites A new study has come out pointing out that a huge percentage (71%) of websites in spam messages point to servers hosted in China. This doesn't mean that the spammers are Chinese or that the companies they're advertising are Chinese - but it appears that's where many spamvertised companies decide to host their websites. What's odd about this, of course, is that China is notoriously strict about what can be done on the internet in China, and many of these spammed sites include porn and other things the Chinese government isn't particularly fond of.
