Actually I think it may be about right. One of the reasons I wanted to get the OWASP ZA chapter going again is we have noticed a bit upswing in attacks since 2010. I guess the World Cup put us on the map in more ways than one.

What experiences have others had?

Hi Everyone,

I found this interesting, though not entirely convincing. South Africa is a relatively small country with a relatively small economy. Why are we facing up to 5% of global Phishing attacks?

Thoughts?
