Recently, ProgrammableWeb reported on Seculert, its Advanced Threat Protection suite and the availability of its product line through the Seculert API. Yesterday, Seculert made two announcements that will both expand the use and capabilities of its ATP product line: the Elastic Sandbox and an updated API. The Sandbox allows users to run malware in isolated environments where a professional can analyze and track the malware’s progression. The API updates allow developers to better visualize calls and data manipulation.
If you run a website, like many of our readers, and you have an account system, you probably have problems with spam. One of the main sources of spam is users who register using disposable e-mail addresses. These can be generated by spammers programatically, using services like the Guerilla Mail API I covered previously, and used to make tons of accounts to try to get blog spam through. If this is a problem for you, the DEA Filter API can help.
