Malware C&C Servers Found in 184 Countries

In an attempt to better evade detection, cybercriminals are increasingly configuring their command and control infrastructure in such a way that initial malware callbacks communicate with a server located in the same country as the newly infected machines.

This emerging trend is among the vast and varied findings of a FireEye report, “The Advanced Cyber Attack Landscape,” made public this morning. FireEye gathered the data in the report in an analysis of some 12 million messages communicated between various malware targeting enterprises and their command and control servers.
