    Top 10 botnets generate 80% of email spam

    http://blogs.techrepublic.com.com/10...73&tag=nl.e101

    Grand total

    Daren Lewis of Symantec keeps tabs on many of the botnets for MessageLabs and has come up with some startling numbers. Here are the overall statistics:

    * 80 percent of all spam is sent by these 10 botnets.
    * These 10 botnets send 135 billion spam messages a day.
    * Five million computers belong to the 10 botnets.
    Is your PC infected? Do you have an up to date antivirus?
