Every day, analysts and security experts—all volunteers—from the SANS Internet Storm Center dissect the latest threats, monitor for Web-based “storms” such as virus or worm outbreaks, and dig through sanitized intrusion-detection and firewall logs sent in from people around the world. The incident “handlers” at the Internet Storm Center maintain a regular diary of security incidents and information, from how and where to submit tips about child pornography to details and screenshots of the latest phishing attempts. The site also includes lots of graphics showing, for example, the most targeted ports or where in the world most port scans originate. It’s this month’s A Site to See.
