Live Cyber Warfare

We often hear that the next great war will be fought in cyberspace rather than in the "real world" but is it already being waged? Under normal circumstances, the goings on of darknets, hackers and cyber-criminals is invisible to the average user. Now though a security company has produced a fascinating geographic map that shows you global hacking attempts in real-time and it doesn't need studying for very long before a distinct pattern of China v USA emerges.

The real-time map is maintained by the Norse security company and it shows who’s hacking who and what attack vectors are being used. Norse maintain a series of honeypots to collect the data and often capture fully coordinated attacks against a single target. View the map here. More information on how the data is collected can be found here.
