Monitor Sites For Leaked Data

Anonymous sharing sites such as Pastebin are one of the most common places for leaked data to be posted in the wake of a data breach, second only to the dark web. In many cases when malicious actors compromise a group of accounts through phishing or other cyberattacks, they will post the usernames, passwords, secret questions and other highly sensitive information on sharing sites. This can quickly lead to account takeovers and further data exfiltration from the company. 

 

Data sharing sites such as Pastebin have innocuous uses as well. Developers and employees often use them to share code snippets and other information quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately, sometimes the information can be sensitive and individuals fail to realize that even if they share using a unique link, the data is still open to anyone looking for it.  Companies that fail to monitor anonymous sharing sites can miss easy opportunities to thwart data breaches. 

The ProbleM

Identify Leaked Information

Identifying the signal in the noise can be extremely difficult for security operations teams. Millions of lines of text and code are posted to anonymous sharing sites on a daily basis, in addition to data breaches and other information. Even with specialized software, notifications can be overwhelming and it can difficult to monitor numerous individual websites. 

 

Finding instances of source code, secrets, and other technical data can make it even more difficult. In many cases these pastes won’t contain the name of the company or other identifying information. Analysts are overwhelmed and most solutions offer more noise rather than more clarity
