Video - Global Malware Posted by Sean @ 21:12 GMT

It's always interesting to examine our WorldMap data feeds.

Today I spotted an infected machine that belongs to the U.S. Department of Defense.

Pakes.dft Navy.MIL

A Navy computer in Ohio…

Also — I have finally produced the promised, and long overdue, video of our Google Earth feeds in action. Upgrading my computer hardware was necessary for a smooth video. My old T43 could either run Google Earth or capture the screen but it didn't do both very well with the hardware acceleration enabled.

The video is using live versions of the KML files mentioned in this post.

Some of you wrote to ask about additional KML samples. While it isn't difficult, it does take a bit of time to remove the IP addresses from the feeds. It's not something that I'll do often. But perhaps monthly releases would be of interest?
