    I was surprised that Turkey is #3 and Hungary being #10.

    Ha! Authors of this rating can't distinguish "hackers" from "proxies" and "botnets".

    Right, especially state backed attacks are launched from other countries to disguise the origin of the attack. I can see China being legitimately numero uno, number 2 USA seems alright, I would put Russia at number 3. I know that Romania is a famous hacking hub but would have expected to see Germany or Britain on the list. I think Iran is another big player. I would have guessed India being higher up because of their online scams.

    Norse Map shows alot of attacks, I think its more fancy visuals than anything else.
