November 2019: Academia Program and Inline Filters

🎓 Academia Program

We are now offering free access to members of schools and universities. Accounts that register on intelx.io with an email address from a school or university get upgraded automatically. We have published a list of supported domains and add new ones on request.

You can find all the details here: https://intelx.io/academia

📈 Inline Filters

Our dataset keeps growing and just reached 10 billion selectors with 211 million unique results. With the increasing amount of results a better way of sorting through them was required, so we added inline statistics and filtering.

After making the search request, you can filter by data source, file type, and date by clicking on the statistics summary. Check the GIF in this blog post.

Another attack mitigated

On November 21, 2019 intelx.io came under a login bruteforce attack (we were previously under DDoS attack in October 2019). We have received 27,601 login attempts from 3 IPs.
Details about this incident are available in this blog post. In a twist of events, we were able to find some information about the attacker using our own search engine. We implemented an algorithm to automatically detect malicious login behavior and blacklist the IP.
