Sophos Labs has released their Security Threat Report for next year which details both the safest and riskiest countries. The US holds the majority of BlackHole Exploit sites while Hong Kong was shown to have the greatest risk of Malware infection. Knowing the countries of origin for Malware can help a business quickly confirm or deny the existence of Malware on their network, as a number of phishing Emails can quickly be identified by it’s originating destination. For example, a Paypal message from Macedonia has a high chance of containing malicious code in their links, due to the Email being generated from country without a Paypal office.
