I think they just put it there to symbolize mil/gov, it's not it's actual location. That's my guess

I seen one where they, China went from hardly anything to 621 in one shot. I don't know if this is a lot or not.

Me either.

Any one more tech savy than I know if this is normal or not? Does the US always get hammered like this?

I guess the world does hate the US........

When a large number of "attackers" is seen on that map, it's usually indicative of a botnet strike, wherein one user who has control of several hundred PCs will direct them all to attack at once.

Also here's a disclaimer: The website we're all looking at is only a small slice of total attack traffic. The map shows only known "honeypots", or targets specifically set up to LOOK like a target for a hacker. What's actually happening is really anyone's guess. Looking at map, it's a little more "active" than an average day, but we can't possibly know what the REAL targets are, or how hard they're being hit.

Question: When you say "we" (can't really tell what the real targets are) do you mean, 'we' on ATS, or 'we' anybody period -- (can't tell)?

I'm not sure this question makes sense. Does it?

Your question was crystal clear! I meant "we" as in those of us participating in this thread and monitoring the Norse website.

I left my work about an hour ago (I work IT in Japan. Night shift, mostly answering phones, occasional ACTUAL work like cable patches and whatnot.) So I'll let you know if I get any frantic phone calls from my company about an attack here in the JP.

What if someone is trying to start World War 3 between The US and North Korea? Makes a good plot line for a James Bond movie. I mean they have a scenario where a rogue Soviet General tried start World War 3 between the USSR and the US in the James Bond movie Octopussy.


Well a conflict between North Korea and the US could hardly be called a "World War"...and if an actual shooting war ever did break out, it would be a pretty short and one-sided one.

North Korea has zero capabilities to attack the American homeland militarily, while the US has almost unlimited capabilities as it relates to bringing the sting to NK.


Really?

Sure north korea have no projection capability.

But a fight on north koreas soil would be bloody.

The mess the US army has made in vietnam, iraq and Afganistandoes not fill me with confidence in fighting a enemy thats spent the last 60 years turning there country into a fortress and honey comb of bunker and tunnels.

O and before you go RAR RAR and mention bunker busters:
A) you need to know were the tunnel or bunker is
B) if there is thousands of miles of tunnled you will need enough of them
C) if defectors are to be believed there is enough tunnels and refuntand systems to be a problem

And thats not to mention the WMD's

Imagine sarin or a tactical nuke going off over a division of allied troops moving through a north korean valley?

Good then. I thought (and hoped) that's what you meant. I mean, if nobody could do it, we would be up that infamous creek we all so dislike. Thanks.

I honestly think that site is rubbish.

There is no possible way to monitor ALL internet traffic.

Unless they were the NSA even then I am not so sure.
