We spotted this today:

“Myanmar has become the No. 1 source of Web attack traffic worldwide as the Asian country makes its debut in a cyberthreat index covering the first quarter of 2011, according to new report (registration required).

Released Wednesday, the latest edition of Akamai’s quarterly “State of the Internet report” noted that Myanmar’s sudden appearance at the top of the chart was “certainly unusual”. This was the first time the country placed in the ranking, which has a four-year history, noted the content network delivery provider. It added that the attacks from Myanmar seemed related to attack traffic in late-February and early-March which targeted port 80.”
