Russia is waging cyberwar on Europe while you are sleeping

Russian hackers are targeting European countries according to a report which has been published by Alert Logic.

Alert Logic claims that the hackers are performing attacks on European targets, including European honeypots.

The firm deployed low-interaction honeypots in public cloud infrastructure around the world to imitate vulnerable operating systems, leaving common ports open to attract hackers.

On analyzing the resulting data, Alert Logic found that the largest number of attacks on Northern European victims (40%) came from Russia.

Western Europe’s primary attackers, meanwhile, came from China and North and South America. The majority of attacks on US targets came from China (32%), followed by the US itself (21%), India (17%) and Russia (9%).
