Investigator Toolkit May Roundup 🔗︎
In May, we featured the following four Hub items and their use cases in the Investigator Toolkit series:
OpenPhish: Brand Protection 🔗︎
To protect your organization from phishing attacks and brand impersonations, simply tap into OpenPhish to identify suspicious URLs or IP addresses for further investigation!
urlscan.io: URL Scanning 🔗︎
Through running the urlscan.io Transforms in Maltego, investigators can query information about a URL, such as site content, relationships with other sites, etc., without loading data on their local devices.
Image Analyzer: Image Analysis 🔗︎
The Image Analyzer Transforms derived from Google Vision API allow investigators to extract text, detect faces and sensitive content, and identify objects and landmarks from images.
alphaMounain: Threat Intelligence 🔗︎
Look into unknown domains, DNS names, or URLs and identify potential risks by querying alphaMountain for reputation scores and relevant content categories.
