One year ago, on the 2nd of February 2009, ZeuS Tracker was born (Introducing: abuse.ch ZeuS Tracker BETA). Today ZeuS Tracker looks back to a very successful year and I would like to use this event to write some words about ZeuS Tracker.
During the last year, ZeuS Tracker has tracked more then 2′800 malicious ZeuS C&C servers. The ZeuS Tracker has captured more then 360MB ZeuS config files and 330MB binaries.
First of all let me say that the success story of ZeuS Tracker was made possible by you. You, the readers of my blog as well as the contributors of ZeuS Tracker are the heros. Your effort, your avertising by word-of-mouth, your submission of new (unknown) ZeuS C&C servers to ZeuS Tracker, your support, this is what allowed ZeuS Tracker to gain so much attention and success. During this year, I’ve recevied hundreds of emails with constructive feedback, questions and offers by people who wanted to contribute their work. Thank you!
