Alert Bulletin - Russian FTP Hacking Activity
Over the last 2 days Jigsaw Security noted an uptick in Russian hacking activity aimed at FTP servers. The activity specifically was to identify and attempt to see what was contained on FTP servers.
The File Transfer Protocol (FTP) is a standard network protocol used for the transfer of computer files between a client and server on a computer network. FTP is built on a client-server model architecture and uses separate control and data connections between the client and the server.
A server may be secured with password or 2 factor authentication and may also be public in some cases. This alert is being sent to alert those of the identified IP addresses of the attacker. Any questions can be directed to Jigsaw Security at 800-447-2150 Ext. 6
We will continue to monitor this activity and appreciate any reports of activity observed by the Internet community.
