The command and control centres (C&C) for more than half of the world’s botnets are in the US, not China, says security firm CheckPoint.

A recent report by US cyber security firm Mandiant said a Chinese military base in Shanghai is one of the world's "most prolific cyber espionage groups," yet only 4% of botnets are controlled from China.
