Possibly correct if your honeypot is in Chennai.

Elsewhere in the world, other nets are likely to figure. For botnets, Stiff's scurvy crew say CN 1st, IN 2nd and US 3rd: https://www.spamhaus.org/statistics/botnet-cc/

I am surprised the ratio of encrypted traffic is not higher. SSL is free, domains and hosting are cheap and no-one seems to think it is their problem if a fraudster tells lies when applying for any of these.
