Philippines is Kaspersky’s 18th most-infected country

According to Kaspersky Labs’ Cyberthreat Real-Time Map, the Philippines is among the top 20 most malware-infected countries around the world.

Kaspersky’s Cyberthreat Real-time Map is an online tool that gives you a visual representation of online malware activity being detected by Kaspersky Antivirus and Internet Security Multi Device software around the world.


Whenever Kaspersky’s sub-system is triggered, it will show up in the map as a beam of light, represented by different colors depending on what kind of malware is detected (infected flash drives, email, malicious websites, online intrusion, etc.)


From 00:42 – 00:50 of the video you can see an oddly-shaped Philippines with mostly green and blue light beams.

At the time of writing, the Philippines was ranked at number 18. Russia takes the top spot as the most infected, followed by Vietnam, the United States, India, and Indonesia.

    Eugene has created his own version of the “Hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy!” Those pests are doing Parkour in the rooftops; send in Jackie Chan the Supercop! Better yet, create a Defensive Plasmawall to wipe out every germ known to man. I got that reference by watching to much Michal V’s Joy dishwashing commercials…..

    because 99% of pinoy populations not invest on antivirus mahilig sa libre (mga free loaders baga kung san may libre doon sila dadagsa) thats why tops tayo sa most infected computers ng mga mallwares na yan…

    If you were just using the right antivirus and firewall… it will be hard for these malware to intrude to your computer.

    I’ve using just free antivirus and free firewall, and I don’t get malware for more than 15 years.

    Most people I know are not the sophisticated bunch. Pag bumagal mga laptops nila all they can think of is to pay someone to reformat it.
