5. Taiwan

Taiwan, which China considers to be a province, accounted for 3.7 percent of the world's attack traffic during the fourth quarter of last year, putting the region in 5th place. Taiwan's share dropped from 4.5 percent in the previous quarter and 7.5 percent in the year-ago period.

While Taiwan is a top source of attack traffic, it is also a popular target. Research by the security firm Sophos found that 12.7 percent of computers in Taiwan had been attacked by malware during a three-month study last year.
