Luckily this is not an issue with our customers, all they have to do is limit their access. I would image most of our US customers have already limited this access.

Cyber attacks are on the rise, but where are they originating from? If you guessed China, you’re close, but most of the attack traffic during the quarter actually originated in Indonesia, according to a new report from Akamai.

In the second quarter, Akamai found that attacks originated in 175 countries, with Indonesia accounting for 38 percent of those attacks – up from 21 percent in the first quarter. China came in at No. 2 with 33 percent, down 1 percent this quarter. The U.S. stayed at No. 3, but dropped from 8.3 percent to 6.9 percent.
