Snort for the Road Warrior
What is Snort? Snort is an open source network Intrusion Prevention and Detection System (IDS/IPS) developed by Sourcefire. Snort is the most widely deployed IDS/IPS technology worldwide. Snort has become the de facto standard for IPS.

Russian Business Network The Russian Business Network (commonly abbreviated as RBN) is a multi-faceted cybercrime organization, specializing in and in some cases monopolizing personal identity theft for resale. The RBN, which is notorious for its hosting of illegal and dubious businesses, originated as an Internet service provider for child pornography, phishing, spam, and malware distribution physically based in St. Petersburg, Russia. By 2007, it developed partner and affiliate marketing techniques in many countries to provide a method for organized crime to target victims internationally.
Russian Business Network (RBN) Structure (circa 2007)
RBN Activities According to VeriSign, RBN was registered as an internet site in 2006 Initially, much of its activity was legitimate. But apparently the founders soon discovered that it was more profitable to host illegitimate activities and started hiring its services to criminals. The RBN has been described by VeriSign as "the baddest of the bad".
RBN & Red October Red October was a cyber espionage malware program discovered in October 2012 and uncovered in January 2013 by Russian firm Kaspersky Lab. The malware was reportedly operating worldwide for up to five years prior to discovery, transmitting information ranging from diplomatic secrets to personal information, including from mobile devices. Red October was termed an advanced cyber espionage campaign intended to target diplomatic, governmental and scientific research organizations worldwide. After being revealed, domain registrars and hosting companies shut down as many as 60 domains used by the virus creators to receive information. The attackers themselves shut down their end of the operation as well. According to Kaspersky’s report, the oldest domain name used in the Red October network was registered in November, 2007, and the newest in May, The RBN Network went dark on November 4, 2007 and temporarily moved operations to China. Then, after a few weeks, disappeared again.
Russian Cyber Operations David J. Smith “Unlike China,” Jeff Carr, the CEO of Taia Global, explains on his Digital Dao blog, “Russian cyber operations are rarely discovered, which is the true measure of a successful op.” Russia-its government and motley crew of government-sponsored cyber-criminals and youth group members-has integrated cyber operations into its military doctrine and is conducting strategic espionage against the United States.
