Re: Country of Origin for Malicious Attacks

  • From: Jamie Reid
  • Date: Thu Jun 26 21:52:44 2003

I've found that country of origin is less relevant than route/subnet and ASN, as there
is a link between the address and the people in a position to actually respond to the problem. 

I'd be interested in knowing how linking aggregated attack information to country of 
origin is actually valuable relative to our ability to respond to it. 

Cheers, 

-j
