August 2005: Drone Army Botnet C&C listing

  • From: Fergie (Paul Ferguson)
  • Date: Wed Aug 31 19:59:21 2005

Keeping is step with Gadi's language from last month:

Below is a periodic public report from the Drone Army(DA)/Botnet
Research and mitigation mailing list.

For this report it should be noted that we base our analysis on
the data we have accumulated from various sources.

According to our analysis of information we have conducted thus
far, we are now publishing our regular reports, with some
additional information, which may vary from time to time,
as needed.

As of this July 2005, any responsible party that wishes to
receive information about botnet C&C's in their net space
can contact us and be added to our notification list. The
principle contact is Paul Ferguson (Fergie).

Special appreciation is due to Staminus who took quick action to
resolve the suspect C&Cs of the last report and rapidly resolved
all of the suspect C&Cs which appeared during this current survey.

The report summary includes a Percent Resolved Column in order to
recognize the mitigation efforts of the AS Responsible Parties.

The Opens Unresolved column represents the number of unique C&C
which reported as open to the survey's connection attempts and
which have neither been investigated nor cleared by the Responsible
Party (to the extent of our knowledge).

The Total mapping count may include multiple names mapping to a
single IP within an AS. We count each mapping count as a unique C&C.
