Find phishing and malware with a simple search

GeneralEdward KiledjianComment

A very important function of any information security team is threat intelligence. Threat Intel can be a complicated and costly service in some cases but can be as simple a running a simple search in other cases. Here is a trick to get you started with the simple and cheap function.

Did you know you can find lots of "fun" phishing and malware links using nothing more than a simple VirusTotal search? Search VirusTotal for Google Storage API (precooked link). 

Go down midway on the results page and voila.


The one I highlighted above takes you to a dropbox phishing site


Some may not be fully formed yet. Some may already be taken down but you can find some interesting opportunities for research. 

Simple "script kiddy" level Threat Intel for you.
