As bot armies attack, this new real time tool can help mitigate the risks for your stakeholders and customers
NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Group-IB, Russia's leading computer security company, has announced Bot-Trek™, a comprehensive tool that gathers compromised data and intelligence from botnets and makes it available to the original Intellectual Property owners via a SaaS solution.
Botnets is an exploding problem. They are used to steal private data, send spam, provide anonymous services for crimes, and perform DDoS-attacks. The current threats against enterprises, governments, service providers, and telecoms, are approaching critical levels.
"Bot curators using the latest zero days to avoid anti-virus software, can drop malware onto victims computer and then command them to perform criminal activities," states Dan Clements, Group-IB US Managing Partner. "These clever bot masters and their command servers are a moving target but Bot-Trek™ goes where no malware has gone before."
Bot-Trek™, through Group-IB's corporate structure, has access to many intelligence sources and technologies that provide access to bot data.
"The complexity of tracking malware all the way down to the smart phone and then re-verse engineering it back to the source, wherever in the world it resides, and capturing log results, is a main task of Bot-Trek™," states IIya Sachkov, CEO of Group-IB. "It's a cat and mouse game that has no end, and thus capturing real time data and getting it back to the original owners is a preemptive solution that saves hard costs and protects an organizations goodwill."
Group-IB Bot-Trek™ extracts information from malware logs which may contain E-banking logins and passwords, leaked credit cards, money mule information, compromised IP addresses, socks, spam- and DDoS-bots IP-addresses, and leaked data from corporate domains or IP-ranges (e.g. corporate e-mail accounts, intranets, etc.).
