And more advanced practitioners are better at hiding their true location. Usually by tailing through India! For example, you didn't see me here.

Curious
Are we still stuck on the idea that the country who owns an IP block where an attack originated from is somehow involved/complicit in the attack? Where did this list come from? Was the genesis of this article taking a list of the recently busted and then sprinkling facts about their country of origin?

Atlas
Some interesting points.  Guess I was expecting interactive maps showing traced origins by intensity, sophistication, impact, etc... over time.  

Learned some things, in any case.

Diverse attacks
Quite an interesting atlas of cybercrimes. Not just the countries mentioned but the types of attacks. I'd be interested in seeing an updated one of these perhaps as soon as next year to see how attacks are changing. Would an updated atlas have more critical infrastructure attacks?

Reply to hacks and spammers
just send them all a 'Write Zeroes' command back tracked to them to take them down and erase all their data.

re: India... Not especially surprising, I suppose, considering that according to other reports, many black-hat non-hacker hired guns are hired there for pennies for such tasks as decoding CAPTCHAs and spamming message boards for black-hat SEO.

Nice Slideshow would have appreciated the Financial Details more
Hi [email protected]!!!

This is a most informative slideshow.

However,would have loved if it had more information on much money each country would have taken in from various hacking operations(& also which countries have lost the most cash).

What is increasingly apparent is that most of the hacking events/Targets are involved in Financial theft so it makes more and more sense to keep your Financial Databases,etc isolated from the General Internet with no Web facing Apps whatsoever.

Will that make the whole experience a little boring;Sure.

But it will save companies enormous financial Burdens in the Long run.

Re: Bold
Cybercrimes are now an issue for many countries, and i think that countries have to organise their defense.

Bold
USA: That is extremely bold to continue your crime after cooperating with the government. I thought Albert was going to Mitnick his way out of there but I guess not.

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
