Decreasing Threat Count
As of last week, we have noticed a trending decrease in the number of threats to our network. The on going attempts on our FTP services have decreased by roughly 93% overall, and have yielded a list of nearly 100k now black listed IP’s.
Attempts by parties to breach the FTP services have been to this date unsuccessful, and have been using simple baseline password and username combinations. As stated before, all usernames and passwords are created EXCLUSIVE. As such, the automated ban service has been blacklisting IP’s associated with these attempts, and recording data on all attempts of this nature.
We have experienced no network disruptions, and do not anticipate any.
