Viruses Visualized

This is one of those things that you can’t verify the truthfulness so you have to rely on the source.  Kaspersky Labs is one of the leaders in the industry for malware protection.

On their website, they have this intriguing visualization that claims to show Cyberthreats as they are happening.

The map can be seen live here.

It’s a fascinating watch – it does show a world of connections, that’s for sure!

With your mouse, take the world for a spin and see what’s happening anywhere or wait for the popup to show what the current most-infected country is.

It’s a great start to a conversation about malware and the reasons why you should have software installed, make sure that it’s updated, and scan your system regularly.

Of course, there’s a link to download their software if you wish.
