According to Cisco, Indonesia is not a producer of spam but merely played a role as victim. The facts was disclosed by Cisco by its annual report on internet attacks during 2008. Number one spam producer was United States, followed by Turkey and Russia. I got this news from Detik.
Prio Utomo, Director Systems Engineering-Technology Cisco Indonesia, said that Indonesia was only become victim from more of 200 billions spam that circling in internet everyday. He did knot knew whether Indonesian people were not able to produce spam or because Indonesian people are good people.
In addition to spam, Cisco also mention other ways of cyber crime mode used in attacking along 2008. They are phishing, reputation hijacking, social engineering and botnet.
I am glad to know that Indonesia is not a producer of spam. Hope that Indonesia people are good people who do not want to harm others by producing spam and send it to the internet. In my opinion, I think that Indonesian coders were able to produce spam since there are many cyber expert in Indonesia. But, they don’t think that producing spam is worth to do. They are not proud of being mentioned as spammers.
