Bad Packets® Cyber Threat Intelligence

The cybersecurity landscape is constantly evolving as emerging threats continue to target enterprise networks, internet of things (IoT) devices, and cloud computing environments. Monitoring and identifying these threats is a critical task to mitigate the damage done by threat actors.

Our worldwide network of honeypots detect active botnets, including variants of Mirai malware, that are scanning the internet and engaging in malicious activity. We locate distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) botnet command-and-control (C2) servers and report them to the affected network providers, CERT teams, and law enforcement agencies. IoT devices infected with malware are frequently used for conducting DDoS attacks – making it an important task to locate and remediate compromised hosts quickly.

Bad Packets CTI API Example CVE-2019-15107
Bad Packets was the first to detect mass exploitation of CVE-2019-15107 by threat actors. Compromised servers were used to conduct DDoS attacks.

We provide curated threat intelligence data feeds for malicious activity targeting:

IoT and consumer networking devices

Enterprise networks

Distributed computing platforms

Microsoft Windows servers

Content management systems

Frameworks

  • ASP.NET
  • ColdFusion
  • PHP

Bad Packets® Enterprise CTI dataset is tagged with the targeted device/service, vulnerability exploited, and includes CVE when applicable. Our API also provides the location of malware payloads (binaries) used by threat actors and is continuously updated with the latest indicators of compromise (IOCs) as new threats are detected. New unique Mirai-like (DDoS) botnet detections are added to mirai.badpackets.net hourly.
