Malware Global Infection Map

In what might be the most ingenious ad campaign for anti-virus software we’ve ever seen, Kaspersky Lab has put has put together a terrifying, interactive infographic of sorts calling attention to malware threats in real-time. The “Cyberthreat Real-Time Map” visualizes our planet in relation to malware, displaying the infection rates in every country and ranking them based on which are the most infected. Russia comes in at number 1, with the United States and India taking the 2 and 3 spots, respectively. Of course, it’s nothing more than a clever endorsement for Kaspersky Lab’s Security Scan software, but it’s fascinating to see the reach of malware across the globe in such a visually evocative format. See for yourself on Kaspersky’s site.
