India has the dubious distinction of ranking amongst the top 10 source and target countries for web application attacks.
In Q1 2016, the US was the main source of web application attacks, accounting for 43% of attack origin traffic. This was a 13% drop from last quarter. Brazil was the second-largest source country at 12%, followed by China and the Netherlands (8% each), Romania (7%), Russia and the UK (6% each), Germany (4%), and the Ukraine and India (3% each).
Sixty percent of web application attacks targeted the US, while only 9% targeted Brazil, 6% targeted the UK, and 5% targeted India.
