About once a year, we run a brief survey of our readers to figure out how to improve our site. This year, we want to focus on issues people  have submitting logs. We added a lot of new features and new methods to access our data. We for example significantly expanded our API, added features like 'color my logs' to make it easier to use our data without having to write code, and added additional data sources with external open threat feeds.

In the end the, core data we provide comes from users who submit firewall and other logs on an ongoing basis. In particular, home users can be very valuable submitters in that they can provide good data illuminating the internet's "Background Radiation" of port scan and similar activity. One issue we have been running into is that routers and firewalls often used by home users no longer provide logs. So we are trying to figure out what is holding back users who would like to submit logs.

If you would like to submit logs, but can not do so currently, then please take 5 minutes to fill out our survey.

Please share this link with friends/social media.
