Accuvant Becomes First Company to Publicly Share Malware Behavioral Data, and Mitigation Tools and Techniques

New Accuvant LABS Malware Blog Aims to Drive Education and Collaboration Across Security Community 

Las Vegas – July 26, 2012 – Accuvant, the only research-driven information security partner delivering alignment, clarity and confidence to enterprise and government clients, today announced that its elite Accuvant LABS malware research team has launched the Accuvant LABS Malware Blog, becoming the first company to publicly share its malware samples, comprehensive analysis, detailed disassemblies, removal scripts, and signature data. The Accuvant LABS Malware Blog can be found at http://blog.accuvantLABS.com.

“The rate at which new malware is created continues to increase every year, and newer, more advanced pieces of malware are being utilized in targeted attacks,” said Jeff Horne, practice director of malware and research solutions for Accuvant LABS. “As an industry, we often treat malware samples like intellectual property instead of having the widest audience investigating the code. Also, information regarding particular samples is sometimes incomplete and even contradictory.  We are establishing this platform and publishing our malware-related intellectual property in an effort to drive collaboration across the community.”

Accuvant LABS is the global leader in security research, attack and penetration, and assessment services. Members of the team have served more than 2,000 clients since 2002, and are widely recognized as industry experts.
