Olympic Games: Made in China
China is traditionally the leading source of spam in the world, and letters from numerous Chinese manufacturers, producing a huge variety of goods, are constantly present in spam traffic. In our October report we mentioned that these mailings are usually linked in some way to the most popular international holidays. And seeing as how January doesn’t really have any major holidays to speak of, the spammers have turned to another major event – the forthcoming Winter Olympics in Sochi. For instance, some warehouse companies have been promoting their services by telling recipients that their services are being used by Russia in preparation for the Sochi 2014 Games.
