Update: February, 01/2016 - 07:48

HA NOI (VNS) — Hackers from China and US launched the most cyber attacks against systems in Viet Nam last year, recent statistics from the Viet Nam Computer Emergency Response Team (VNCERT) revealed.

According to VNCERT, cyber attacks are becoming more serious.

Viet Nam is a country with the fastest information and technology (IT) growth in Southeast Asia, thus, it has become a target for global cyber criminals.

The VNCERT tracked and recorded the attacks on information systems in Viet Nam and revealed the top countries with the most IP sources attacking the country.

Of these, China and the US took the lead, followed by Russia, Switzerland, Netherlands, Ireland, France, Romania and Germany.

The VNCERT warned that as these countries have developed IT industries, domestic agencies and organisations should closely co-operate with countries in the region as well as in the world to update and improve response capacity against hackers from many countries worldwide. — VNS
