    title says it so far blocked the top (7) hacking countries, what else would you add, it might sound like a stupid question but I just want some added protection (like what blackfog does), so if you know some recent botnet I could try to block it just to be sure. I know you can circumvent this easily
    blocked so far: russia, turkey, ukraine, belarus, bulgaria, china, taiwan, brazil, romania, hungary
    ofc I need US for browsing
    best

    State sponsored hacking in N Korea garners at least $35 million a year.

    Italian hackers seam the most shady types (personal opinion) , often tied with groups such as fascist movements, masonry, mafia (and so on)

    usually they focus on political targets (using APT)

    second country I fear the most is Brazil on how innovative they are with malware, implementing any scientific nowelty they can find
