Synopsis:

Despite the increasing general awareness and the media coverage, so many people tend to
minimize the cyber crimes and their effects - Are you one of them?

You surely heard about the famous Nigerian scams - the advanced fee fraud schemes. But did you know there are more scams originating from US IP (Internet Protocol) addresses than they are from Nigerian IP addresses? Most likely not. Does this automatically mean there are more online scammers in the US than there are in Nigeria?

Also, you definitely heard about Chinese and Russian hackers and the security threats they pose for individuals, companies and governments throughout the globe. But did you know the Chinese and Russian IPs are not the most abusive IPs in the world? Again, most likely not.

And did you know Polish IPs are far more dangerous than the IPs of much bigger countries such as Pakistan, Mexico, Thailand or Iran? Moreover, did you know that Senegalese IPs present more risks for you, an internet user, than Danish, Norwegian or Finnish IPs?

These sounds very intriguing, but what is the book all about? In a nutshell, the book is the first to present the cyber crimes from a global perspective, discussing:

  • Various forms of cyber crimes
  • Cyber crimes rankings
  • Top abusive countries for each cyber crime

Furthermore, the book covers, in detailed profiles, each country in the world, indicating:

  • IP ratings
  • Global Threat Status
  • Abuse patterns
  • Common patterns with neighborhood countries
  • Associated risks
  • Threats posed to everyday internet users

You may still wonder "Why should I read this book?" I could give you a fancy answer and say that the book is based on state-of-the-art research, that it will help you understand how and why these abuses exist, their patterns, the associated threats, the importance of fighting IP abuses, and so on - and, of course, all these are true.

But I will not give you the fancy answer. One thing life has taught me is that simplicity is majestic. So, rather that offering you a fancy answer I will only say this: if you use the internet, you must read this book!
