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).”

China launching cyber attacks on Missile defense every day

While we hear about trade agreements with China being unfair to American workers, how about the fact that they are working on killing us?

Chinese military hackers are conducting cyber attacks on the Pentagon’s Missile Defense Agency networks on a daily basis and will soon shift to hacking into networks of missile defense contractors, the admiral in charge of the agency told Congress on Thursday.

Perhaps we don’t have our priorities straight. Just suggesting. To give you an eye full, take a look at the attacks from around the world in real time. Maps are interactive, buzz around:

A report by the Defense Science Board warned in 2013 that critical U.S. weapons and other military systems are vulnerable to cyber attack.

“The United States cannot be confident that our critical Information Technology (IT) systems will work under attack from a sophisticated and well-resourced opponent utilizing cyber capabilities in combination with all of their military and intelligence capabilities (a ‘full spectrum’ adversary,” the report concluded.

If this didn’t put our nerves on end, try this one.

Map of cyber attacks in real time for those wishing to be spellbound

With the revelation of the recent cyber attack on Centcom, 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. Sooner or later if we don’t get on this someone will get into the really big room. Here we go:
