Great find! The ThreatTraq Internet Weather Report

March 26, 2019  |  Kate Brew

Every week, the AT&T Chief Security Office produces a set of videos with helpful information and news commentary for InfoSec practitioners and researchers.  I really enjoy them, and penned a blog on a segment on the impact the banning of smartphones in some secure federal facilities  a few weeks ago.

The Internet Weather Report is a look at what’s happening on the vast network AT&T oversees as evaluated by the AT&T CSO team. So on the 2/21/19 Internet Weather Report, for example, here was the situation overall:

Matt Keyser, Principle Technology Security, AT&T typically leads the discussion with a couple of guests for commentary. He covers the most probed ports and the most sources probing, ranking them and comparing them with the previous week. Then he dives into the interesting stories. For example, on the 2/21 episode, Matt drilled into the scans on port 8080, which looks to be exploiting a common bug in a couple of Netgear routers.

It’s a great resource for InfoSec practitioners and researchers alike!   John Hogoboom. Lead - Technology Security, Security Platforms,  and Stan Nurilov, Lead Member Of Technical Staff, Security Platforms, also present the Internet Weather in other episodes.
