A homage to the “hpfriends” malware analysis framework. This video is a stylized animation demonstrating the prevalence of Internet malware. Branches in these “malware blooms” occur per country, then new branches for each city and each node is an IP address in that city. As new branches occur and old ones recede, the bloom rearranges itself – resulting in some spectacular events. The data is real and collected from specialized malware sensors which share the data via hpfriends sharing framework.
