    It's nice to read that the U.S. still excels in something. ;)

    No real surprise here. Spam, malware, and controlling other peoples computers is all about money, power and greed, aka capitalism. Statistics (the art of making numbers say anything you want them to) comparing the US to China don't reveal the whole story. Translate those percentages into "incidents per capita" and watch the percetages jump. On a per capita basis, most of the threats are from within, and have been for some time.
