Lol...I'm not surprised about the Chinese connection. Communism at it's best.
Not so much Communism as a combination of censorship (preventing people from getting news about how to protect against viruses and trojans, as a major side effect) and a hostile attitude towards the West, such that attacks going *out* of China are ignored, but incoming attacks are firewalled almost immediately.
As a former hosting service provider, I have plenty of experience with China. I found the best way to handle them was to null-route any IP space assigned to China.
Does this really surprise anyone here. There population density is high and that region is where many viruses etc originate from. Keep on trucking.
Hardly surprising, given the large number of computers in China and the fact that, according to StatCounter (http://gs.statcounter.com/#browser_version-CN-daily-20080701-20111122), the use of very insecure browsers there remains extensive. As regards a «hostile attitude towards the West» (however this rather ambiguous region may be defined), I should suggest, based on my own experience in China, that it is not nearly so hostile as that of the attitude of many people in North America (in particular) and Europe towards China....
No way really I had no clue!
lol Glad to see Canada didn't make it on the list :P

Not surprising in the least bit... China is both the most restricted and the most prominent when it comes to the internet and tecnology... Most of the games out there that took mere minutes to produce come from China, most of the major attacks come from China, hell most of the tools used in attacks come out of China; what's interesting is how they can have so many technically proficient people while we over in the US barely have any... I guess China must be educating them about computers in their schools.
Again, not surprising.
