Wall of Shame

Here's some of the latest traffic we are seeing today:

US Traffic
1. New York University -Malicious Activity
2. Princeton University - Malicious Activity
3. University of Pennsylvania - Malicious Hacking Activity
4.Carnegie Mellon University - Botnets and Compromised Systems

Foreign Traffic
1. Imagen Y Sistemas - Malicious Activity
2. Blacksun Incorporated - Malicious Activity (Canada)
3. Almighty Power Ministries (Nigeria)

Analyst Notes:
We are seeing an increase in US colleges and Universities that may be related to recent hacking activities previously noted. While we have attempted to contact as many organizations as we can we have noted that many have not acknowledged the activity even though some data has been seen on Darknet and some forums.

In addition some recent Twitter activity shows that some of these hackers are posting specific information that was able to be verified. Many Universities have chosen not to report such issues.

The main attack vector at these organizations was mostly SQL injections according to the Twitter post. Specific intelligence is available by subscribing to our intelligence services.
