China does not lead Country Rankings from

An area where China does not lead the world: Country rankings by China is only #13, but Brazil, Russia, and India (the other three BRICs) are in the top five countries by total spam messages for October 2011. U.S. is #10.

Vietnam came from behind a few months ago to place second for October.

Brazil had slumped as low as #6 in July, but has pulled back up into the leading pack.

After the top five, it’s a long-tail distribution indeed. Of course, even 19 million spam messages a month, as for #20, Philippines, is quite a bit.
