Where all cyber-attacks are coming from?
Cyber-attacks have become a usual matter in the modern connected world. Over the past years, the volume and the geography of attacks have unfolded as the Internet has evolved itself. Attack traffic nowadays comes from every corner of the world, although some countries are responsible for more extent than others. According to Akamai 2nd quarter of 2013 “State of the Internet” report, Indonesia was the top genesis source for attack traffic. Indonesia was responsible for 38% of attack traffic, while China is in second place, which accounted for 33% of attack traffic.
The different viewpoint is provided by AlienVault‘s Open Threat Exchange. It reports that on October 2013 China had the most malicious IP addresses in the world, while United States followed in second place. An increasingly prevalant form of attack is DDos (Distributed Denial of Service). According to Arbor Networks data, the volume of high-bandwidth attacks are increasing significantly.
