Today, INTERPOL announced that a new operation across the ASEAN region, built around threat intelligence provided by Fortinet and other public and private sector security organizations, has resulted in the identification of nearly 9,000 Command and Control (C2) servers and hundreds of compromised websites, including government portals.
Fortinet has partnered with INTERPOL over the past two years to assist in identifying and thwarting cybercrime.
Read what Fortinet's Derek Manky had to say about the news:
“Cybercrime is an increasingly organized endeavor built around a sophisticated web of compromised systems that make it easier for criminals to scale attacks and discourage attribution of their activities. Compounding these challenges, cybercriminals have no regard for political boundaries or national lines, and consistently leverage various geopolitical protocols to their advantage. Cooperation between the private sector and both local and international law enforcement is necessary to turn the tide against organized cybercrime.”
