Tracking Worms, Spam and Malware with Google Earth – Neat!

F-Secure came up with pretty innovative idea where they are tracking Spams, Worms and Malwares and integrating it with them directly on to Google Earth which gives a pretty neat idea from where things are coming. In fact they are tracking first with IP which is converted to latitude and longitude and makes it presentable in Google Earth. Here is one snapshot which tells the source of spam from a single personal account looks like:

As a matter of fact they have created a world map which gives a complete analysis and level of infection of worms, malwares according to continent and how the infection has changed over the period of time.  I find the idea pretty innovative and informative too. Check out more details on the post of f-secure with more images.
