Advancing to Bot Management and Security Credential Stuffing Becomes Top Concern

Published By: Akamai Technologies     Published Date: Aug 22, 2018
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.

State of The Internet/Security

Published By: Oracle     Published Date: May 07, 2018
2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.

A Guide to DDoS Protection

Published By: F5 Networks Inc     Published Date: Mar 30, 2018
Until recently, security teams for organizations in many industries believed they didn’t need to worry about DDoS attacks, but the latest data from the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report indicates that businesses of all sizes in nearly every industry run the risk of being attacked.¹ IoT devices are increasingly compromised, recruited into botnets, and offered up by their creators as for-hire DDoS services. Additionally, there are numerous DDoS tools and services that are easily accessible and easy to use, even for the untechnical novice.

How to Ensure You're Not Part of the Next Botnet

Published By: Sophos     Published Date: Mar 30, 2017
With an estimated 500,000 'Internet of Things' devices using default security credentials it's little wonder that the recent Mirai botnet's DDoS attack was able to cause such widespread disruption. But it isn't just the average home-user that's at risk. Organizations like yours are being targeted with bespoke malware in order to compromise your network and add your servers and devices to malicious botnets. This paper explains why these attacks are so successful, how a typical infection takes place and what security systems your organization should have in place to defend against botnet proliferation.

A Proven Security Intelligence Model for Combating Cyber Threats: A Reference Model for IT Security

Published By: LogRhythm     Published Date: Aug 08, 2016
IT environments have become much more vulnerable as enterprise mobility, cloud services and “bring-your-own-everything” have broken down the defensible perimeter and added layers of complexity to securing the enterprise. At the same time, the nature of cyber threats has changed dramatically. Threat actors are well organized and well funded, and many of them are known to be supported by nation states. They have sophisticated technical skills which allow these actors to create custom malware for very specific targets, and they are relentless in pursuit of their objectives. Moreover, almost anyone with a malicious intent can purchase malware and rent botnets on the Dark Web, lowering the bar for criminal entities, nation states, and terrorists to use cyber as a weapon of choice towards their intended purpose.

Tracing Key Moments in the History of Malware

Published By: Entrust Datacard     Published Date: Jan 16, 2015
Certain types of diseases seem to only occur within certain national boundaries. Malware is not one of them. A formidable threat to enterprise security since the 1980s, cybercrime is a truly global phenomenon, and no business is safe from its reach. A brief look at the history of malware attacks reveals a degree of variance within the virtual threat landscape that makes pinpointing and stopping such attacks extremely difficult. As the historic virus examples illustrate, the malware problem has been and will continue to be a constant threat. Since an offensive line against cybercrime is not possible, enterprises need to prepare the best defense they can.
