FireEye’s World War C report showed that only 0.016% of cyber attacks originate from the UK.

Senior architect Jason Steer told V3: “Whilst the UK is sixth in the FireEye national callback table, statistically this represents only 0.016 percent – while we continue to see the US dominate the callback league with almost 50 percent of originating callbacks, more than 500 percent more than the next country in the league table, Hong Kong.

“The US, with open markets and bulletproof hosting providers, creates an ecosystem ripe for use by attackers today.”
