CloudShark in action: solving the 2022 SANS Holiday Hack Challenge with pcaps

Here’s a great example of how fast CloudShark can get to the right answers in cybersecurity investigations. From time to time our CloudShark support and development teams like to take a step back and try some of the cool challenges and exercises that the network and cybersecurity communities create, and solve them using CloudShark. In this instance, our own Tom Peterson decided to tackle the 2022 SANS Holiday Hack challenge. We love to do this challenge ever year, and this year, a pcap investigation was the first step!

“At this point, it sort of felt like cheating,” says Tom when he switches over to using the Zeek Logs tool. We thought our CloudShark fans would find this a really fun exercise, too. Check it out!
