Segmented worms (phylum Annelida, with tens of thousands of species) are truly ancient creatures, dating back to at least the early Cambrian Period—more than 500 million years ago! They continue to proliferate today, during the modern Internet Period, with new species emerging regularly.

In this episode, we explore the use of Zeek and other tools to rapidly facilitate our interest in "helminthology": the study of parasitic worms. Our focus will be on foundational techniques that have stood the test of time, regardless of species encountered.

[Note: This is Episode 4 of a series of Threat Hunts. The previous three are:
