Digital Attack Map

Digital Attack Map:
A Global Threat Visualization

Digital Attack Map is a live data visualization of DDoS attacks around the globe. The tool surfaces anonymous attack traffic data to let users explore historic trends and put infosec breaking news events into context.

Exploring The Data

The Digital Attack Map displays global DDoS activity on any given day. Attacks are displayed as dotted lines, scaled to size, and placed according to the source and destination countries of the attack traffic when known.


  • Use the histogram at the bottom of the map to explore historical data.
  • Select a country to view DDoS activity to or from that country.
  • Use the color option to view attacks by class, duration, or source/destination port.
  • Use the news section to find online reports of attack activity from a specified time.
