Kellermann analyzes the patterns of malware from the two geographies and concludes East European hackers lean towards custom-built, highly complex malware; East Asian hackers use more off-the-shelf malware and simpler techniques.

It’s an insightful argument and the original paper should be read by IT security staff. However, the bottom line is no matter where malware comes from, be prepared.
