I'm looking into Web App security and this question occurred to me: What could be some possible effects of internet speed on Web app security?
I'm thinking of low latency, low bandwidth connections preventing or slowing the effective upload of payloads to compromise a site and things like that. I know increasing the security of the site can affect the speed a little but what of the inverse, whether positive or negative?
Third world countries typically use less malware protection but also have the advanced world's yesterdays internet speeds. I'm thinking this will limit the use of these hosts for attack, say in a botnet or DDOS.
