The distribution of different sources of malware
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Wei Ming Khoo.
The compromised systems that push malware (and its products such as spam) are widespread on the Internet today. Many researchers and experts have claimed that certain countries seem to “specialize” in particular sorts of malware without attempting to note whether there is any correlation between the different sorts. Thanks to a database that contains up to four years’ worth of data the speaker believes he can draw some conclusions about where different sorts of malware originate and how compromised computers (and hence) IP addresses change what malware they deliver.
