Canada takes 6th position on cyber crime

cyber crimeCanada’s cyber crime landscape has changed dramatically, according to a new Websense report.

Canada has never been in the top 10 countries hosting phishing sites. The top five countries are the U.S., Canada, Egypt, Germany and the U.K. But the dramatic growth rate in the number of servers, already numbering in the tens of thousands, that host malicious sites, Canada is only second to Egypt. Overall, Canada’s global ranking for countries hosting cyber crime has climbed to number six.

The sort of attacks originating from Canada aren’t any different from what they may be in another country. The only difference is cyber crime targeted at the banking sector.

In March, Symantec’s March 2011 MessageLabs Intelligence Report found that, in Canada, spam accounted for 79.4 per cent of e-mail received, and malware accounted for one in 160.1 e-mails, according to the March 2011 MessageLabs Intelligence Report by Symantec Corp.
