US Hosts More Botnets than Russia & China

McAfee has published an interesting report which revealed that the United States is home to more botnets than Russia and China combined. In the meanwhile, botnets are normally associated with 3rd-world countries that have weak regulatory frameworks and a lot of loopholes for money laundering.

Overall, 631 botnet control servers were found in the United States. This was hardly surprising because the country remains the Mecca for cheap hosting. In the meantime, the US is followed by the British Virgin Islands, with 237 servers. Despite population of just 27,000, the small Caribbean nation features the unflattering distinction of hosting more botnet servers per capita than any other place: one per 110 residents. Anyway, this is the Caribbean, and botnets seem to be the new privateers.

The Netherlands took the third line in the list with its 154 servers. Russia came the forth (125 servers) and Germany the fifth (95 servers). The leaders are followed by Korea with 81 botnet servers and Switzerland with 77 servers.

Australia also got on the list with its 83 antipode botnet servers, while China hosts only 48. Despite all the bad press that China gets for malware, botnets and suspected hacker attacks, it’s a very low figure, a far cry from the terracotta cyber army some American media outlets would have people fear. Finally, Canada holds the 10th place and hosts 38 botnets.

In the meantime, clusters of botnet servers can also be seen in other parts of the world, including the Middle East, Eastern Europe and Southeast Asia. The less popular place for botnet servers is South America, but the only continent having no botnet servers turns out to be Antarctica.

No avatarBotnets are the new privateers? Ouch. Not sure that's the most apt analogy. Pretty sure privateers didn't steal private citizens ships and whore them out for criminal usage.

Nice picture of Detroit.
Looks pretty 3rd world-ish to me.
There are lots of places in USA that look like that.
Go across the tracks in my own city and it kind of looks like that.

Embolism avatarI like the way they can say definitively how many bot servers there are in the world and can track them to particular countries,whereas they cannot track those bot net servers that are using tor and irc internoding nor can they track or trace their location so there is no doubt that there are quite a few more than they have disclosed since no accurate figures can be trusted to target such or they would be shutdown by the man.

No avatarBotnets, engineered by the CIA, operated by the Pentagon. Where else can they filter money from
