Kaspersky Lab signs threat intelligence sharing agreement with INTERPOL

INTERPOL

In a fight against cyber crime, Kaspersky Lab signed a threat intelligence sharing agreement with INTERPOL.

Kaspersky’s experts have regularly cooperated with INTERPOL to share fresh cyber threat discoveries with police in its member countries.

The antivirus and internet security software company participated in a groundbreaking INTERPOL-led cybercrime operation that identified nearly 9,000 botnet command and control (C2) servers and hundreds of compromised websites, including government portals, across the ASEAN region.

Kaspersky Lab has also previously assisted in a global operation coordinated by the INTERPOL Global Complex for Innovation (IGCI) in Singapore to disrupt the Simda criminal botnet – a network of over 770,000 infected PCs around the world.

INTERPOL has helped Kaspersky Lab experts to test and improve a free open-source tool that enables quicker and easier cyber threat research.

Anton Shingarev, vice-president for public affairs of Kaspersky Lab, said: “Sharing intelligence is vital in tackling today’s ever-growing threat landscape

Operationalizing Threat Intelligence

Chris Coleman, CEO, LookingGlass Cyber Solutions

Businesses and governments continue to struggle with effectively and efficiently defending their organization and constituents from cyber attacks. The impact of cyber attacks is global and is a threat to national economic growth. A report recently published by the Potomac Institute for Policy Studies estimates that cyber attacks against the Group of Twenty (G20) alone has resulted in the loss of 2.5 million jobs to counterfeiting and piracy and that governments and consumers lose $125 billion annually, including losses in tax revenue.    

To address the impact of cyber attacks to brand, reputation, and operations, the security industry is evolving its defensive techniques through the use of threat intelligence. The goal of threat intelligence bears a close resemblance to business intelligence. Just as business intelligence is utilized to drive optimum performance into a business function, threat intelligence provides an organization

As digital technology relentlessly disrupts and sculpts the global landscape it exposes organisations to opportunities and threats. All evolution comes with challenges and the dark world of cybercrime continues to thrive and is this year’s second most reported economic crime.

The recent NHS computer hack using Wanna Decryptor ransomware shut down IT systems with 75,000 attacks in 99 countries. The unprecedented ransomware breach froze computers across the health service with hackers threatening to delete files unless a ransom was paid.

Only last week the popular font sharing site DaFont.com was hacked, exposing 699,464 accounts in the breach. The passwords were scrambled with the MD5 algorithm, which nowadays is easy to crack. The hacker unscrambled over 98% of the passwords into plain text.

According to Zdnet.com, the unidentified hacker explained his motives for the attack:
