Malware Magnets: A practical walkthrough in developing threat intelligence - Tazz Tazz Converge 2016 (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Malware Magnets: A practical walkthrough in developing threat intelligence
Tazz Tazz
@grc_ninja

Talos has access to multiple terabytes of data, and one of the things we do is proactively hunt bad guys just so we can piss them off. I stumbled across a bad guy doing bad things and started taking a closer look which resulted in the research that will presented in this talk. This talk will discuss research done on identifying relationships between domain pricing, aggregation of malicious sites, and repeat offenders (bad actors). It will discuss why deeply discounting domains makes a registrar a malware magnet and how to find bad actors before you become a victim.

Tazz is a security veteran whose technology interests began with Atari and she was amazed when a word processor had enough memory to hold multiple lines. She’s been involved with technology since 1997 starting her career in communications, after which she completed her degree. She’s had various IT roles and responsibilities over the years to include Field Software (Breaker/Fixer) Engineer, System Administrator of Chaos, IA Hoodlum, Compliance Sorceress, Information Security Cat Herder, Security Architect and is currently a Security Squirrel. She enjoys fitness, horseback riding, weather above 70F, and anything full of laughs and weird people.
