Infographic: Hackers Create An Amazing, Illegal Portrait Of The Internet

(Note: Always change the password on your router!) With this access in hand, they ran several tests focusing on Internet structure and activity. And what they created from all this data is a spectacular map that captures a day in the life of the Internet (and all of its users).
