Without going into too much detail, the past 6 months have seen me embark on a fairly significant project that is focused on finding security issues that concern New Zealand businesses and our address space. The project evolved from two smaller projects:
- A Slack channel of Shodan enthusiasts.
- My (retired) malware tracker.
Between my existing operation and the general goal of the Slack channel we found a common purpose of helping find issues in our country and initiate resolution of them through public and private sector contacts.
A large component of the data that we generate is phishing sites, so I thought I’d take the opportunity to share a small number of the insights that I’ve gathered from the first couple of months my platform has been live.
