In the last blogpost, I promised to write something about our new project PROKI. PROKI is the abbreviation of the Czech phrase for ‘prediction and protection against cyber incidents’ and in this project, our team set two goals for itself.
In early October, the international project “Cyber Security in the Danube Region” organized training for security teams operating within the region. As sharing of information and knowledge are essential in the field of security, I decided to write a post in which I would like to draw attention of the security community in the Czech Republic to two very interesting free tools.
In the last year we noticed several interesting incidents and events which are certainly worth for use to come back to them in this way again. By the way, only the amount of incidents being solved increased from 495 for the year 2013 to 939 incidents in the last year. And these were often not only negligent events.
In our Turris project, in addition to taking preventive measures that would protect users against various attacks from the outside, we also do other activities. Those include contacting clients from whose side we detect attempts to connect to IP addresses that are known to be botnets’ command and control centers, or blocking IP addresses that are used by websites to perform malicious attacks on users. During that time we have seen some curious incidents that I would like to briefly outline here.
