ThreatLinQ: Event Sharing
ThreatLinQ works with the Threat Management Center (TMC) website to collect and analyze information about the security posture of the Internet. Globally aggregated information about filters, source IP addresses and source/destination ports is displayed and can be used to enhance the security of your network.
Because the ThreatLinQ data collected through event sharing could be sensitive, the default setting is off. If you wish to enable this function, navigate to the Security tab of the System Preferences dialog box accessed from the Edit → Preferences menu.When ThreatLinQ is enabled, the SMS uploads the aggregated events during the last calendar day. This shared data helps ThreatLinQ to provide a complete picture of world security and where the attacks originate. The event sharing option includes the hit count and filter number. The second level option includes the source IP addresses.
