Submission + - Real-Time Cyber-Attack Map->

anavictoriasaavedra writes: In October, two German computer security researchers created a map that allows you to see a picture of online cyber-attacks as they happen. The map isn’t out of a techno-thriller, tracking the location of some hacker in a basement trying to steal government secrets. Instead, it’s built around a worldwide project designed to study online intruders. The data comes from honeypots. When the bots go after a honeypot, however, they’re really hacking into a virtual machine inside a secure computer. The attack is broadcast on the map—and the researchers behind the project have a picture of how a virus works that they can use to prevent similar attacks or prepare new defenses.
