Infamous IP Address Resurfaces

A couple of days ago researchers over at Sucuri posted a blog, detailing some investigative work on suspicious redirects which turned out to be the result of NameCheaps Free DNS service.

I won’t cover the detail of the blog (go read it, its a great piece of work) but one of the most surprising and interesting things (to me at least) uncovered was the resurrection of an IP related to the prehistoric and infamous conficker virus’s C2 domains.

So it just goes to show that I’m not the only person in security that like to pay homage to the past, even if I do it in a slightly less conspicuous fashion.
