DNS for Massive-Scale Command and Control
Found in: IEEE Transactions on Dependable and Secure Computing
By Kui Xu,Patrick Butler,Sudip Saha,Danfeng Yao
Issue Date:May 2013
pp. 143-153
Attackers, in particular botnet controllers, use stealthy messaging systems to set up large-scale command and control. To systematically understand the potential capability of attackers, we investigate the feasibility of using domain name service (DNS) as ...
The Deshredder: A visual analytic approach to reconstructing shredded documents
