This puts the Netherlands in ninth place in the list of countries. Leader is the USA (21%), followed by the UK (9.5%) and India (6.1%). If there specifically looked at botnet servers used in targeted attacks coming Netherlands not even appear in the list.Trend Micro noted that the location of a botnet server says nothing about the country or the criminals behind the infection.
