Live hack attack video for the world

The security firm, Norse, has a honeypot worldwide network that attracts a tiny fraction of the hacking assaults.  The tiny honeypot attracts hundreds of probes in a minute and mirrors what's happening across the internet.  Watch for yourself.  Most originate in China or the USA and most are directed at the USA.   USA targets are internal or scattered about the globe.  China's targets have tunnel vision and are mostly in one place, the USA.  There is a separate category for attacks attributed to military and state institutions.  If you hover over any one country source or target or type of attack, the display immediately filters for those results. (Hat tip to Engadget). (If nothing shows, try a different browser).  I happened to catch a large outbreak with the screen shot below.
