October 2019: Russia, Grouping Results, and DDoS attack

🇷🇺 Russia

Want to investigate the Russian government? We are helping with a new search category, “Government: Russia”. It indexes data from Russian governmental domains, including:

  • gov.ru – Russian Government
  • mil.ru – Ministry of Defence of the Russian Federation
  • kremlin.ru – Official website of the President of Russia
  • fsb.ru – Federal Security Service
  • government.ru – Russian Government
  • supcourt.ru – Supreme Court of Russia
  • cikrf.ru – Central Election Commission of Russia
  • ombudsmanrf.org – High Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation

The historical data goes back to December 2017. For details and examples how to search this data, read the blog post.

Feature: Grouping Similar Results

Intelligence X’s dataset is rapidly growing. We store more than 5,433,069,194 selectors (= domains names, IP addresses, emails addresses, etc.) from more than 126,894,458 unique search results.

Therefore, we developed a new feature that helps to declutter: Grouping of similar results. It can be enabled in Advanced -> Settings -> Group Similar Results.

DDoS Attack against intelx.io

intelx.io was under a DDoS (distributed denial of service) attack on September 19, 2019. We received 1.259.671 HTTP requests in 20 minutes from 62 IPv4s. The attack was unsuccessful and intelx.io continued to operate as usual. The attack was only noticed on October 1st, when visitor statistics were analyzed and a spike was noticed. Read more in this blog post.

🌍 Web Crawling

We started with crawling & archiving the public web. Initially, we are crawling German 🇩🇪 and Russian 🇷🇺 domains and will add more TLDs in the upcoming days & weeks.

New search categories will be added soon. This data will be available for free.
