Botnets in China

Date: January 29, 2007

China is now the most infected country in the world and Asia contains half the world's infected computers, according to security company Prolexic.

The figures come from the company's Denial of Service (DDoS) Weather Report, which reports on the botnet activity around the globe from infected computers.

Countries in Asia account for five of the six most infected territories around the world, with the US in second place. The UK is tenth.

Net use in China is exploding. According to figures for 2006 released by the China Internet Networks Information Centre (CNNIC), the People's Republic now boasts 137 million Internet users, up 23.4 per cent year on year.
