Kaspersky Lab's Cyber Warfare map provides a 3D visualization of the malware infiltrating our phones and computers all over the globe.

IT security firm Kaspersky Lab created an interactive and comprehensive cyber threat real time map that shows a 3D visualization of all the cyber attacks being detected and dealt with by the company’s anti-virus software around the world.

The cyber warfare map shows a 3D globe that can spin and rotate with the help of the user’s mouse. The scroll wheel zooms in or out of a specific location. Cyber attacks are shown in different colors based on the type of threat. Clicking on the button on the lower left of the site shows a description of the types of threat.

Aside from zooming in or out on a specific location, users can also switch from the 3D globe view to a 2D map mode, change the color scheme from black to white, and switch the interface language.

The cyber threat map shows live statistics and a running total of the threats detected. The detection totals reset every day at midnight GMT. The map also shows the top most infected countries. Clicking on a country shows the stats for that country and its rank in the most infected list.

Kaspersky Lab’s cyber threat map not only helps provide people, especially the company’s clients, an idea of how their internet security systems work each day, but also provides a look into the extent of cyber attacks around the world.

The microsite for the cyber threat map was created with the help of Amsterdam-based creative production company Minivegas.

Check out a video demo of the map below.
