A non-profit consortium – consisting of The Hague Humanity Hub, the CyberPeace Institute (CPI), Connect2 Trust Foundation and The Shadowserver Foundation, co-funded by Rijksdienst voor Ondernemend Nederland (RVO), will produce a national level assessment of the cyber threat landscape for NGOs, while measuring the impact and harm of cyber threats on the sector.

Observations on cyber threat activity and vulnerabilities in Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand

May 30, 2023
Shadowserver has recently been funded by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) to provide more detailed and tailored cyber threat insight support to countries in the Association of Southeast Asia Nations (ASEAN), specifically Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines and Thailand. These activities included obtaining a better understanding of the device makeup of the exposed attack surface in those countries, vulnerability exposure (especially relating to emerging threats) and observed attacks/infected devices - coming both from and directed at the region. The intention is to enrich Shadowserver's free daily threat feeds and public benefit services to the region, providing National CSIRTs and other system defender entities (organizations that are network owners) with a better awareness of their threat and vulnerability landscape, thus helping them to improve their cybersecurity posture.

UK/US Joint Announcements Remind Us That Un-Remediated Vulnerabilities Snowball

April 20, 2023
The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) and the US Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued an alert on nation-state sponsored exploitation of router infrastructure. The alert calls out SNMP public exposure and one vulnerability in particular - CVE-2017-6742 - which relates to a long known “remote code execution” opportunity on certain Cisco routers. This alert is a timely reminder for all with unpatched equipment to think broadly! We use this opportunity to highlight our data and free daily reports that provide information on the SNMP and Cisco device exposed attack surface (and more!).

The Data Center Move - All the Gory Details and Extras

October 16, 2020
As everyone knows now, Shadowserver had a bit of a funding issue earlier this year which caused us to go through the process of needing a new space for our data operations.  A place to call home for all that storage and computing that we do daily.  A new data center was required.  This story will go through that recent history, the actual move, and a few after action and post move things that occurred.  This blog will be partially serious, some tongue in cheek, and some sad comedy, so enjoy our journey.
