    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.

    North Korea and India right? I heard that Ukraine is a major launching point for attacks, probably because of it location between the West and Russia.

    North Korea yes they have access to Chinese tire but India no they have limited access to Chinese tire and is heavily monitored by Chinese for any online propaganda. Pakistanis have access to Chinese tire.

    "Ukraine" means "Borderland", "Frontier". It is not "between West and Russia", it is "Wild West of Russia".
