Web site mapping cyber war


Author: JT Smith

Johannes Ullrich writes “DShield.org, a site that collects
firewall excerpts from volunteers, is now plotting a daily world
map of current activities submitted to the site. With about 100,000
lines of firewall logs being submitted daily, DShield.org generates
not only a number of reports, but also forwards these reports to
ISPs from which the attacks originate.
… The map, as well as the time laps Movie
illustrate the focus of hacking activity on North America and Asia.
The fast switch of attackers form one attack mechanism to the next
is well ilustrated by the animated graphics, which covers the last
10 days.
… Data submitted to DShield.org is exchanged with SANS’s
incidents.org site.”
