I often wonder where cyber attacks come from and this report illustrates very nicely what countries appear to distribute the most attacks, as well as the types of attacks.
It’s time to publish the statistics derived from the Cyber Attacks Timelines of January 2016 (Part I and Part II). As usual let’s start from the Country Distribution Chart, which is led by the United States for the categories of Cyber Crime and Hacktivism. United Kingdom and Ireland were also particularly hit by criminals, while hacktivists reserved a particular attention for Thailand and Japan. And let’s proceed with the Daily Trend of Attacks Chart that, after a slow start, shows quite a sustained activity with two peaks on the first and third week.
