I wonder if this is related
The file name has ncfta in it.
I wonder why no-one picked this up. It´s definitely related, and it would be really disturbing if this data originally came from the NCFTA, as the
filename at least suggests.
From their "About the NCFTA" section:
The NCFTA, a non-profit corporation, evolved from one of the nation’s first High Tech Task Forces and, since 1997, has established an expansive
alliance between subject matter experts (SMEs) in the public and private sectors (more than 500 worldwide) with the goal of addressing complex and
often internationally-spawned cyber crimes. These SMEs, from industry, academia and government, each bring specific talents and experiences to the
partnership. Through a steady cycling of such cross-sector national and international resources, both embedded at the NCFTA and through
initiative-specific intelligence channels, the NCFTA is well positioned to adapt and regularly reinvent itself to better address today’s evolving
Reading through the veil of corporate buzzwords it comes down to a non-profit organisation, specialising in providing services related to
solving/tracking cyber-related crime; an alliance of worldwide experts from the private and public sectors, as well as governments.
The primary objectives of this public/private alliance are to:
•Identify, mitigate, and neutralize cyber crime threats
•Rapidly build intelligence to the actionable level so that the threat can be: ◦Further located/identified (who all are involved and where they
◦Mitigated through timely enhancement of security practices/procedures
◦Effectively neutralized through:
■Proactive law enforcement engagement (domestically & internationally)
− This can/may include both criminal and civil avenues in coordination with appropriate authorities
■Implementation of interim technology solutions (i.e. null-routing of botnet traffic or similar interdiction action via TLD’s or
(Emphasis added by me)
From this I conclude that they do work with law enforcement agencies such as the FBI and it may very well be that they are the ones who provided the
data in cvs format to the agent.
It´s no surprise to me really, but we are being spied on massively!
