“Indonesia isn’t known as an epicenter for hacking, but the Southeast Asian country was the source of 21 percent of the world’s cyber-attack traffic in the first quarter of this year, according to a report by Akamai Technologies to be published later today.
The type of activity observed in Indonesia suggests an aggressive botnet attack, according to the study. A botnet takes control of hordes of personal computers by infecting them with malicious software that forces them to do a hacker’s bidding.”
