Somewhere in the world, right this minute, someone is launching a cyberattack -- and a new online map lets you watch as it happens. Norse, a St. Louis-based cybersecurity firm specializing in “live dark intelligence,” has created an interactive map that shows hacks around the globe in real time. The slick world map shows countries trading color-coded attacks, as well as details including the home countries of the attacker and the target. Keep the map running for a while and you'll see an outsize number of attacks originating from China and the United States, which are locked in an ongoing cyber-spying battle.
