Hong Kong has ranked top in Prolexic’s Zombie Report for the first quarter of 2005, with the highest number of zombies participating in large-scale DDoS attacks per capita. Hong Kong also ranked 11th in the actual number of infections per country. This is not good.
The high numbers could be attributed to the high broadband penetration but Hong Kong does not have the highest number of broadband connections per capita. We must question why there is lax security, and how can it be improved effectively and efficiently.
