Amazon and GoDaddy are the biggest malware hosters

Quote:
The United States is the leading malware hosting nation, with 44 percent of all malware hosted domestically, according to Solutionary.

The U.S. hosts approximately 5 times more malware than the second-leading malware-hosting nation, Germany, which is responsible for 9 percent of the detected malware.

In addition to these findings, they discovered that malware distributors are rapidly and widely adopting cloud computing, either by buying services directly or by compromising legitimate domains. This trend is allowing distributors to quickly and cost-effectively develop sites and bring them online, as well as to avoid geographic blacklisting by hiding behind the reputations of major hosting providers such as Amazon, GoDaddy and Google.

Probably wouldn't be such an issue if these companies were held accountable for the sites they host,
They are enablers,
Cheers.
