ThreatExpert is under attack

The malware community has came up with an idea of what they call “a reliable detection” if a threat is being analyzed by ThreatExpert.

The code of such detection has been distributed in underground malware forums a few days ago.

This “discovery” was a bit surprising to us, but what followed it makes us believe ThreatExpert automation has finally pissed these guys off: a few hours ago, there was a massive DDoS attack launched against threatexpert.com.

We are currently working to resolve this problem. What these attacks really mean to us is that ThreatExpert is really working against them.

Update: the DDoS attack was successfully blocked within a few hours since it started.
