Re: Brilliant
Egress filtering and monitoring might be of some help: if your systems aren't *supposed* to be going to Twitter & Github, why are they requesting URI's from them?

I'm kind of surprised how many enterprises simply allow outbound traffic to go where it wills, although operating margins often mean that not enough resources can be devoted to servicing such a paradigm, and user behavior in some offices these days often includes a mix of work and personal activity, as you're probably aware.

A more stringent vetting process for twitter would result in less of an ease of acquisition in terms of accounts for genuine users. Question is, if they are using twitter as the inbetween between attacker and victim does this make twitter in some way liable?

FireEye has provided a malware IoC for companies to look for. What I keep thinking is, why can't Twitter monitor some of this account abuse? That's only one piece of the CnC, but the fact that they can abuse it so freely seems silly.

Pretty impressive on their end. What are some security guidelines to follow to make their malware attempt less effective?
