CAMPBELL, Calif., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Barracuda Networks, Inc. (NYSE:

"'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, chief research officer and VP, Barracuda. "Threatglass was designed for both casual users and the research community to provide a way to document and better understand this ongoing problem."

Threatglass was built as a frontend for a large-scale, automated system that leverages heavyweight virtualization to detect web-based malware in a vulnerability and exploit-independent manner. The platform analyzes millions of websites each week. Websites for inspection are sourced from multiple data feeds including the Alexa top 25,000 websites, social feeds and suspicious websites from Barracuda's customer network, consisting of more than 150,000 organizations worldwide. In addition to screen captures of the infections, Threatglass displays various representations of network traffic including DNS, HTTP, and netflow in both graphical and textual formats. The system has cataloged approximately 10,000 live web-based malware attacks and adds new ones each day.

Barracuda Labs' malware detection engines have discovered numerous infections in high-profile websites. In the last few months, Barracuda Labs published those findings for Cracked.com, Php.net and Hasbro.com. Those examples and thousands of other infected websites now are visible through Threatglass.

Key features Threatglass users can explore include:

Visualization

-- Casually browse website infections in an Pinterest-like graphical

representation

-- View charting and trending data of historical malware volumes

-- Examine relationships between various components of an attacker ring Community

-- Share data among other researchers

-- Review easily-parsed breakout data as well as source data
