Most of the spam I see originates/ is sourced/ from abused proxies all
over the world -- that doesn't define how the spam comes about, but
which user IPs in the .us .cn .kr and everywhere else have become
zombie trojans to serve as spamsources.
A great deal of spam has spamvertisers whose webspace is derived from
.cn providers who are unresponsive.
Spamhaus has a big list of ROKSO spammers and beside each rokso is an
The top of the list is Alan Ralsky who is assigned as a US spamgang and
many other gangs are called US. Spamhaus also has a writeup of Alan
In that writeup it describes the role of the .cn providers for Ralsky's
operation - and others. "Nowadays Ralsky hosts 'offshore' in China to
evade US authorities. But the offshore hosts are soon blocked and
terminated so he's forced to hop from one Chinese provider to the next
like most of the spam gangs."
