Brad Duncan is a Security Analyst at Rackspace, where he investigates suspicious network activity.  Reviewing alerts on web traffic from Rackspace offices world-wide, we occasionally discover domains hosting exploit kits or other malicious files.  Our researchers investigate these leads to gather malware samples, identify threat actors, and determine other indicators of malicious activity.  This blog entry discusses one such recent investigation.
