Map of cyber attacks in real-time


With the revelation of the recent cyber attacks by Ransomware, I came across a fascinating site that has real-time demonstrations of attacks.

Both the Norse links below and the Kaspersky lab links demonstrate what we are up against every nanosecond. This was a post done a couple of years ago, and  just as mesmerizing now as then. Here we go:

Norse ‘dark intelligence’ has a ‘live’ map of global cyber attacks and Kaspersky Lab has an interactive cyber threat map, both update in real-time. Careful not to get sucked in as the amazingly hypnotic maps are serious time eaters.If you’ve ever been entranced by maps showing data in real-time, such as a lightning strike map, then it’s likely a global map with “live” cyber attacks might hold you spellbound too. Below is a screen capture. For real-time, follow the links. It is interactive, so use icons at various locations at sites.

Kaspersky Cyberthreat real-time map and Norse Attack Map are the live links. (They were down earlier, but are working as of this moment.)

If you are interested in viewing attacks in real-time on something other than thousands of honeypots, then Kaspersky’s interactive cyber threat map might fit the bill. Although the attacks seem like they are being launched from China, that is not necessarily true as attackers are good at masking their real location. Just the same, in this little snapshot of “live” activity, Norse’s cyber attack map shows China launching massive attacks on the USA. As far as attack origins go, the U.S. is plenty active too; in fact the top five attack countries are China, followed by the U.S., Bulgaria, Netherlands, and Other Country – wait, what?

Kaspersky Lab has over 60 million users and detects more than 300,000 malicious objects every day. Its cyber threat map shows threats detected in real-time “with various diagnostic tools, including On-Access Scan, On-Demand Scan, Web and Mail Anti-Viruses, as well as the Vulnerability Scan and Intrusion Detection System.”According to Norse, a “dark intelligence” and security solution company, “Every second, Norse collects and analyzes live threat intelligence from darknets in hundreds of locations in over 40 countries.” As cool as the attack map is, what you see is only a “small subset of live flows against the Norse honeypot infrastructure, representing actual worldwide cyber attacks by bad actors. At a glance, one can see which countries are aggressors or targets at the moment, using which type of attacks (services-ports).”

    The day will come that one of these cyber attacks will somehow take down our nation’s electrical power grid.

    Likely you all know the complexities of all this problem much better than I . Article I read urged everyone to update to new Microsoft operating systems. I’m sure purchase required. Hummm, reminds me of medical/drug companies research. Buy latest patented and expensive meds, old won’t do. Patch you up, no cures.

      Unfortunately, Microsoft stopped supporting XP version. Many hospitals alone use programs compatible for XP. Microsoft should be sued. That is why I use a MAC

        Good morning Bunkerville,

        While checking out this WannaCry 2.0 yesterday, I ran across this website, The Hacker News and found a link for folks with older Microsoft systems: https://thehackernews.com/2017/05/wannacry-ransomware-windows.html.

        Long story short, here is the Microsoft link: https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/msrc/2017/05/12/customer-guidance-for-wannacrypt-attacks/

        On a personal note, I think that the worst thing to ever happen was company’s like Microsoft giving the NSA encrypted codes to systems that we, the consumer, have or will buy.

        Adding to that fact that government and owners of Operating Systems should stay out of laptops and cellphones, the federal government is inept, the NSA being no better.

      Thanks for the info… Microsoft costs companies billions with all their nonsense. I agree. They should stay out of our T.V’s as well.

    That is pretty cool…(not the attacks, the map, lol)

    —hey, guess who was one of the Commencement Speakers yesterday? Chuck Schumer—yep…it was short lived as he was forewarned about the impending weather. He tore up his speech and made a short speech—there were a lot of boos from the audience when he was introduced, my husband being one of them, sigh. He just cant behave for one minute. lol—hey, when I came off stage, he shook my hand and said Congratulations…now I gotta double wash my hand, LOLOL.

      Interesting choice of speaker… at least the class didn’t stand up and turn your backs to him! Lucky you!!!

        some turned their backs…not all…but you know, I don’t think he even noticed or heard the boos. I cant stand the way he looks over his glasses, there is just something unnerving about that. Commencement was almost over, and we had major heavy rain heading in, so he made it short. That, and I can say most of us were tired of sitting in the cold and for 2 hours.
