Group-IB releases Bot-Trek(TM) - the Ultimate Botnet and Cyber Intelligence Service

NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Group-IB, Russia's leading computer security company, has announced Bot-Trek(TM), a comprehensive tool that gathers compromised data and intelligence from botnets and makes it available to the original Intellectual Property owners via a SaaS solution.

(Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130218/NY61751LOGO) Botnets is an exploding problem. They are used to steal private data, send spam, provide anonymous services for crimes, and perform DDoS-attacks. The current threats against enterprises, governments, service providers, and telecoms, are approaching critical levels.

"Bot curators using the latest zero days to avoid anti-virus software, can drop malware onto victims computer and then command them to perform criminal activities," states Dan Clements, Group-IB US Managing Partner. "These clever bot masters and their command servers are a moving target but Bot-Trek(TM) goes where no malware has gone before." Bot-Trek(TM), through Group-IB's corporate structure, has access to many intelligence sources and technologies that provide access to bot data.

-- Distributed network of Honey Net traps -- Advanced Sink holing Technology -- Underground infiltration -- Phishing sources and Malware intelligence databases -- Previous Forensic and CERT cases "The complexity of tracking malware all the way down to the smart phone and then re-verse engineering it back to the source, wherever in the world it resides, and capturing log results, is a main task of Bot-Trek(TM)," states IIya Sachkov, CEO of Group-IB. "It's a cat and mouse game that has no end, and thus capturing real time data and getting it back to the original owners is a preemptive solution that saves hard costs and protects an organizations goodwill." Group-IB Bot-Trek(TM) extracts information from malware logs which may contain E-banking logins and passwords, leaked credit cards, money mule information, compromised IP addresses, socks, spam- and DDoS-bots IP-addresses, and leaked data from corporate domains or IP-ranges (e.g. corporate e-mail accounts, intranets, etc.).
