Frost & Sullivan Report – Credential Stuffing Becomes Top Concern

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Sep 11, 2017
Malicious botnets present multiple challenges to enterprises — some threaten security, and others merely impact performance or web analytics. A growing concern in the bot environment is the practice of credential stuffing, which capitalizes on both a bot’s ability to automate repeat attempts and the growing number of online accounts held by a single user. As bot technologies have evolved, so have their methods of evading detection. This report explains how the credential stuffing exploit challenges typical bot management strategies, and calls for a more comprehensive approach.

How IT and Audit Can Work Together to Strengthen Cybersecurity

Published By: AuditBoard     Published Date: Nov 26, 2018
Affecting over 200,000 machines in more than 150 countries, the ransomware known as Wanna Decryptor, or “WannaCry,” became the largest cybersecurity attack in history in May 2017. The malicious software locked out users from critical data, and demanded a ransom payment to unlock the contents. Governments, hospitals, and corporations scrambled to address the attack and prevent the infection from spreading. Ironically, the virus’ execution method was simple: it exploited a vulnerable Windows SMB protocol to spread – an exploit Microsoft had addressed two months prior to the attack with the release of a patch.
