Infographic: Honeypot cloud security data
Posted on 15 August 2014.
New infographic data on hackers reveals that Russia stealing passwords is the least of our cyber worries. Recent data reveals that China and India are attacking U.S. servers more frequently than Russia is stealing passwords.

Alert Logic gathered this data by deploying honeypots in public cloud infrastructures around the world to observe the types and frequencies of attacks, and how the attacks vary geographically.

Attracting hackers like bears to honey, Alert Logic was able to gather an immense amount of data that details:
  • Most attacks on U.S. IT devices come from China (32% of attacks witnessed)
  • 94% of malware observed was credential-stealing malware
  • The U.S. had the highest proportion of attacks on HTTP, perhaps because of higher web adoption.
