We found 27 different social networking applications across 95% of the participating organizations.

Wireshark Plugin for Mariposa Botnet Command and Control

As a follow up to last week’s post regarding Mariposa infection research, Yamata Li of the Palo Alto Networks Threat Research Team has developed a Wireshark plugin that will allow you to view obfuscated pcaps of traffic from a Mariposa infected client and actually decrypt them within Wireshark. The software is available to all as open source software under the GNU GPL license. We hope that it helps in doing further investigation and research into the Mariposa botnet.

Control Applications, Control Threats.

Over the past month, we’ve been pulled in by customers to analyze various “weird” behavior on the network. One of these instances happened a few weeks ago.

Is UTM an Enterprise Product?

Recently, Greg Young of Gartner blogged about Enterprise UTM’s, comparing them to Unicorns and Pixies. I could not have agreed more with everything that Greg has wrote in his blog and would like to focus on his last bullet point.

Who’s the best illusionist?

When asked who’s the best illusionist of all time, you’ll likely hear anything from Harry Houdini to David Copperfield to David Blane, but they don’t have anything on your IPS vendor.
