Malware & Cyber Threats
is dedicated to researching, identifying, and
providing timely alerts through data feeds and proactive intelligence
on cyber threats under analysis.
MCT maintains a data repository containing malware and corresponding
network attributes being utilized by threat actors around the world.
The technical data is then correlated with other datasets in order to
associate malware with cyber crimes such as banking fraud, spam
campaigns, phishing, and botnet activity. In doing so, MCT
seeks to identify trends or patterns that will assist in mitigation and
neutralization efforts as well as detect future threats.
As hacktivism and terrorism continue to utilize social media to
recruit new members, discuss ongoing or upcoming events, and maintain a
revenue stream, it is critical to be aware of and observe these
communications. To help protect partners and global economic interests,
MCT provides feedback based on threat topics of interest.
