๐Ÿง‘โ€๐Ÿ’ป Automated malware detection for IPFS

Detecting malicious content on networks like IPFS is difficult and time consuming. Malware, phishing webpages, and other types of malicious content are harmful to the ecosystem!

We created the Large Field Analyzer to help developers automatically detect malware on IPFS content.

Create an account and get started at letoanalyzer.com.

  • Login and submit an IPFS CID(s).

  • The files are download to our malware analyzer Sandbox.

  • In the user's account, each CID is given a score from 0-10. Any score over 5/10 is potentially malicious.

Check out the docs to learn more.

DISCLAIMER: This software is still a work in progress! The accuracy and information given from our analyzer will improve as our analyzer software codebase grows.

๐Ÿ“Š Collect analytics on a dedicated IPFS gateway

Leto supports many common IPFS gateways including Web3.storage, Pinata, Spheron, and more! If you use a dedicated IPFS gateway from one of these providers, you can use Leto to collect analytics on this gateway. Read the docs.

Login at Leto.gg and select "Proxy gateway".

  • Input your dedicated IPFS gateway link and choose your provider

  • Leto creates a new gateway that resolves requests to your dedicated gateway.

  • This new gateway also collects anonymous analytics!

  • A new gateway link is provided. Use this link to serve IPFS content for your app or platform.

๐Ÿ’ฌ Spam tracking

Anonymous IPFS traffic collected by Leto can be used to identify spam on IPFS content. We are experimenting with a notification system to alert a developer to suspicious traffic spikes on their platform. More on this soon!

Our Filecoin Orbit Austin group hosted Lindsay Walker from the Starling Lab for an awesome workshop! She walked us through the Capture, Store, and Verify Framework. We learned about case studies, and tools used to verify data for journalism, law, and history!
