Return of the ThreatCenter blog

We've been dormant for awhile, but its time to bring back the ThreatCenter blog. eSoft's work in the web security area (identification of malicious/ compromised websites, not securing of web servers) has produced amazing results and huge volumes and its time to share some of these results back to the greater community.

We recently shared some data on a few days worth of fraudulent pharmacy sites with Richart Stiennon who published the information on his ThreatChaos blog (if you haven't read the article, please check it out -- and digg it while you're there). eSoft is seeing these sites at an increasing rate that is fairly staggering.

In our next post, we'll show some of the uglier examples of what we call "pagerank bombs" -- compromised sites used to host hidden links rather than malware.
