(Akamai Technologies) The majority of observed internet attacks continue to come from the Asia Pacific/Oceania region, according to American internet content delivery network Akamai Technologies's The State of the Internet 1st Quarter, 2013 Report. Survey data included in the report show that the percentage of internet attacks originating within the region increased from 56 percent of all observed attacks in the fourth quarter of 2012 to nearly 68 percent of the total in the first quarter of 2013.

China remained the leading originating country of observed attacks accounting for 34 percent of attacks in the first quarter of 2013, down from 41 percent in the fourth quarter of 2012. This decrease is largely due to a sudden rise in attacks originating in Indonesia. The Southeast Asian republic jumped into second place with a thirty-fold increase in attacks during the first quarter of 2013, bringing its share of observed attacks to 21 percent.

Hong Kong, one of China's special administrative regions, rose to tenth place with 1.6 percent of attacks. Meanwhile, Taiwan, which China claims as its own, remained among the top ten originating countries with 2.5 percent of the total observed attacks.
