It's very pretty, but if I'm reading this correctly, this is actually a map of who's infected with Kaspersky products. I guess their software calls home every time it detects something.

Yeah, many attacks on corporations or institutions go unreported or under reported for some time for various internal reasons. Neat map, though.

Always interesting to see how Lesotho fucks with map software. Also interesting to see Hawai'i stats show up, even though there is no landmass for Hawai'i on their map. It looks as if Cthulhu is tweeting from the bottom of the Pacific.

This is a gentle reminder that multi-level secure computing was figured out in the 1970s, and all of this security theater can go away if we adopt it.
