    As per the report, in 2009, India ranked second for origin for Web-based attacks in APJ, with 16 percent of the APJ total. Amongst the cities in India with the highest number of bot-infected computers, Mumbai figured at the top with 50 percent.

    The The Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR) is based on data collected by Internet sensors, research, and active monitoring of hacker communications."Attackers have evolved from simple scams to highly sophisticated and focused campaigns," said Vishal Dhupar, managing director, Symantec, India. "India is becoming more and more susceptible to web-based attacks because broadband penetration in the country is increasing, but at the same time the awareness to protect IT infrastructure is lacking.
