On the heels of McAfee's report of "Operation Shady Rat," a security research company has released a tool to help organizations determine whether their networks were compromised during the attack.

The tool, called Shady Rat Checker, checks IP addresses against those found on the "Shady Rat" command-and-control server.  If an IP is found (see screenshot below), it essentially means the network is already compromised and possibly sending data to servers managed by malicious hackers.

The tool also reports how many times the infected machine communicated with the command-and-control server.

"This is only one of the many attacks we monitor on a daily basis," says Seculert CTO Aviv Raff. "Shady RAT is interesting because of the way it communicates with the command-and-control server. The other parameters are not so different from any other cyber attack."

    My ISP uses a proxy and a shared IP address, my network is probably compromised. I should pay for static IP or something next time.

    I just paid $22.87 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $675 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, BidsOut. com
