Check your region with new global Cyberthreat Map

By Bizclik Editor

 

Kaspersky Lab has launched an interactive cyberthreat map that visualises cyber security incidents occurring worldwide in real time.

The types of threats displayed include malicious objects detected during on-access and on-demand scans, email and web antivirus detections, as well as objects identified by vulnerability and intrusion detection sub-systems.

In today's world of cyberthreats, it only takes a few minutes to spread new malicious applications or spam.

Kaspersky Lab’s globally distributed cloud-based infrastructure - Kaspersky Security Network (KSN) - helps Kaspersky Lab products receive information about new suspicious files and other threats almost immediately after they appear.

Internal KSN mechanisms summarise the data sent automatically from thousands of protected devices whose users consented to share information about any suspicious programs they encounter.

Users can rotate the globe and zoom in to any part of the world to get a closer look at the local threat landscape. Different types of threats detected in real time are marked with different colours.

The user can bring a description of each threat up on the screen or disable the display of threat types.

In addition to share buttons for users of social networking sites, there are buttons to switch: the background colour, the language interface and the display mode (flat map or rotating globe). There is also a handy link to check if a computer is infected with malicious software.

Denis Zenkin, Head of Corporate Communications at Kaspersky Lab, said: "Every day Kaspersky Lab handles more than 300,000 malicious objects. Three years ago the figure was just 70,000 but antivirus technologies have also changed with the times and we have no problem coping with this huge stream of traffic.

“Where do the attacks come from? Where do users click on malicious links most often? Which types of malware are the most prevalent?

“These are the sort of questions being asked by lots of users. Our new map of the cyberworld threat landscape allows everyone to see the scale of cyber activity in real time and to get a taste of what it feels like to be one of our experts.”

The interactive map of the cyberworld is available at http://cybermap.kaspersky.com. To be displayed correctly, the browser must support WebGL.
