I’m getting several attempts on my computer every day. I report these hacker attempts with my firewall software.
They analyze corporate and individually-submitted data like mine to track patterns of attacks, hacking attempts, and disruptions. Once a pattern is mapped, the appropriate authorities and ISP carriers can be notified.
I just looked at their sourcemaps for the first time today.
Significant incidents recently reported:
24 Hours – 78,541,667
7 Days – 547,791,660
30 Days – 2,356,379,550
It shocks me to see that the sources of the attacks are mostly in the US and Northern Europe.
Wow! Look at Texas! What does it mean?
