The United States used to be the leading industrial nation in the world, producing the best cars, TVs, clothes and deep-fried Twinkies. Those days are gone, but the U.S. can still claim primacy in one important area: the most malware-infested, phishing-friendly hosting provider.
The newest report from HostExploit, an independent group that monitors the level of relative malicious activity on hosting providers around the world, shows that HostDime, a provider based in Orlando, Fla., had the highest relative levels of malware and phishing and other malicious activity in the second quarter of 2011. The servers hosted by the company had high levels of phishing, exploit servers, Zeus servers, spam and other unwanted activity, according to the report.
