The Cyber underground, taking a look at 5 underground forums and activities

Trend Micro had an event today which I attended. The event is called a webinar. This is basically like a telephone conference, but all over the Internet using a platform to listen. This particular event delbt with the cyber underground of 5 different countries. One question was in regards to two others, but there wasn’t enough time to cover every single one.

Here are some take aways:

  • The Russian cybercrime forum is full of different things including the most active on finding and using vulnerabilities and using them to do harm.
  • None of them want to harm people, a lot are informational, sharing links to stories and other things of that nature.
  • A lot of the attacks use home devices provided by your internet provider. I really should look to see how I can change, if needed, those default log ins.
  • Shodan was talked about as a research tool. We should search our own IP and see what it has to say. You aren’t going to get “asked for it” if you don’t look, however, we just don’t know. It doesn’t hurt to look.

I wasn’t sure how I was to ask this, but the webinar was saying “he” meaning males are involved in all of this. I’m curious if any females are involved in this type of activity in their research, but wasn’t really sure how to ask it so we’ll see what comes out over time.

Here is the link to register for this event so you can get access to the on demand copy when it becomes available.

This was quite interesting, and if you do view the on demand, let me know what you think.
