India Second-Most Targeted Country by Hackers in 2018 with 120 Crore Attacks

With over 120 crore account takeover attacks in 2018, India came only second to the US among top destinations for hacking attempts in the world, says a new report. Each attack represented an attempt by a person or computer to log in to an account with a stolen or generated username and password, according to a new edition of the “State of the internet/security” report from Cloud delivery network provider Akamai Technologies.
Canada comes close third for attacks. However, India and Canada are greatly overshadowed in volume compared with the US, said the report that focused on credential stuffing — or breaching of databases — attacks. The US witnessed 1,252 crore hacking attempts in 2018, compared with 120 crore in India and 102 crore in Canada.
