The World's Worst Botnet ASNs

Autonomous System Numbers (ASNs) in this chart have the highest number of detected spam-bots as listed in the Spamhaus XBL zone, sorted by ASN. See one of the below links for a definition of ASN. Most bots can be used for spam, phishing, click-fraud, DDoS and other malicious activities.

Many issues may relate to a country's bot density including technical, policy and socioeconomic factors.
