Who Hacks The Most? Hint: Not China
Where do most hackers call home? Russia, in fact.
Next up is Taiwan, followed by Germany, Ukraine, Hungary, and — surprise — America, according to monitoring done by Deutsche Telekom’s Sicherheitstacho project cited by Bloomberg’s Businessweek.
That puts the country currently in the hotseat, China, in 12th place — uh, six behind the US.
It is also interesting to note that Russia’s alleged activity far outstrips others, with well over over two million attacks in February, compared to Taiwan’s measly 907,102, according to Bloomberg.
The Deutsche Telekom study was commissioned by the German state as part of its Alliance for Cyber Security project,according to Brian Fung of National Journal. (Bloomberg said it was “unclear” exactly what Berlin expected to “glean from this data.”)
The statistics do not differentiate between group and individual hacking attempts, said Bloomberg.
