The website is designed to help show visitors detailed information of activities on malicious websites, and also includeds screenshots of the browser, e-mails sent, and number of domains and objects requested.

 

"'Good sites gone bad' is a daily problem for popular websites targeted by attackers and used to serve malware to their unsuspecting visitors," said Dr. Paul Judge, Barracuda Networks chief research officer, in a press statement. "Threatglass was designed for both casual users and the research community to provide a way to document and better understand this ongoing problem."

 

In a time of continued cyber threats, the Barracuda Threatglass resource will prove to be an interesting place to view infection incident reports. Visitors have the ability to view the most recent group of compromised sites, and screenshots are hidden until users choose to view them - because quite a few compromised websites have pornography or other adult content.
