Use our Dashboard to dig into two years of aggregated country level data about many different type of threats, including some unique data sets and vantage points, then visualize the data in various ways that can be easily shared via URLs. Free to use (with attribution) for research, informing policy makers and by journalists/news media in educating the public about cyber security threats.

Shadowserver Special Reports - Cyclops Blink

February 23, 2022
In May 2018, the US DoJ, FBI and industry partners sinkholed the modular network device infecting malware known as VPNFilter, which Shadowserver has been reporting out for remediation to nCSIRTs and network owners each day since. In February 2022 the UK NCSC, US FBI, CISA and NSA jointly announced the discovery of new network device malware, which they have called Cyclops Blink, and see as a more advanced replacement for VPNFilter. A new Shadowserver Cyclops Blink Special Report was issued to our free daily network report subscribers today, detailing IP addresses believed likely to be infected with the Cyclops Blink malware, and the associated C2 servers.

Changes in Sinkhole and Honeypot Report Types and Formats

April 1, 2021
Over the years, Shadowserver’s report list has grown considerably from when we originally started. When some of these reports were originally set up, the requirements were different to those needed today. We have therefore decided to implement changes with some of the existing report types, especially those related to our sinkholes and honeypots, as well as remove some legacy reports. Changes will come into effect on 2021-06-01. On that day, the old reports will cease and only the new equivalents will be sent out. Until that time, starting 2021-04-05 both the old reports and new reports will function in parallel.
