"South Korea and China came in second and third place, respectively, but together they sent just half as much spam as the United States."
"Zombie computers are sending out over 40 percent of the world's spam,"

... and a lot of people are bagging Microsoft for a lot of the security they have put into SP2.... it was all put it to reduce those newbie mom's n dad's on fast-as-slippery-shit cable and DSL lines from being infected with stupid trojans and rooter kits.

.. well they have at least tried.

I have a vision... :)
Do-gooders bots zooming around sniffing for potential zombie computers and installing firewalls on them.
Or better, doing a complete cleanup of the zombie, removing viruses/trojans/worms first, then installing a firewall afterwards.
"This computer was unzombified by the Fairy01256.f bot. Have a nice, clean day!"

Seems like it'll always be easier to vandalize than to prevent vandalism. Quite disheartening, really.

I believe that Vandalism appears only where Ownership/Responsibility is lacking.
To take a example, I noticed that the places that get graffiti-ed are nobody-owns-it locations. Like gov properties or abandonned houses. The graffiti remain there for months or years.
I once cleaned a wall full of graffiti which was getting new scribbles almost every day. After it was cleaned, there were no more new graffiti.
