How the Most Prolific Malware Traversed Your Network Without Your Knowledge

Published By: Gigamon     Published Date: May 23, 2019
A new report from Gigamon ATR helps security practitioners understand how Emotet, LokiBot and TrickBot traversed enterprise networks without detection in 2018. It particularly focuses on the malwares’ command and control (C2) and lateral movement, as these behaviors expose opportunities to observe network traffic, discover these threats and reduce risk. The goal: shorter mean time to detection and response, a more mature security program and a balanced approach to mitigating risk.

Cybercrime Tactics and Techniques Q1 2019

Published By: MalwareBytes EMEA     Published Date: May 10, 2019
Enterprises, beware. Threat actors are continuing to eye businesses for high returns on investment in Q1 2019, breaching infrastructure, exfiltrating or holding data hostage, and abusing weak credentials for continued, targeted monitoring. From a steadfast increase of pervasive Trojans, such as Emotet, to a resurgence of ransomware lodged against corporate targets, cybercriminals are going after organizations with a vengeance. Yet every cloud has a silver lining, and for all the additional effort thrown at businesses, consumer threats are now on the decline. Ransomware against consumers has slowed down to a trickle and cryptomining, at a fever pitch against consumers this time last year, has all but died. Interestingly, this has resulted in an overall decline in the volume of malware detections from Q4 2018 to Q1 2019. While threat actors made themselves busy with challenging new victims, they ensnared targets in the old ways, using tried-and-true malspam and social engineering tactic

Cylance 2017 Threat Report

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

Providing a Frontline Defense Against Fileless Malware

Published By: BlackBerry Cylance     Published Date: Jul 02, 2018
Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.

CEO Disconnect is Weakening Cybersecurity

Published By: Centrify Corporation     Published Date: Apr 13, 2018
As business models have become increasingly digital, high-profile, reputation-damaging security breaches are grabbing more news media headlines. Leading companies have ramped up their investments in cybersecurity, yet that spending is often not well aligned with actual threats. Studies have shown that server-focused solutions such as network anti-virus, malware detection and website firewalls attract the biggest investments, ignoring the fact that misuse of privileged credentials is by far the most common cause of breaches. The reasons for this disconnect are not well understood, in part because it sits at the intersection of the people and technology domains. This survey, conducted by WSJ Custom Studios with sponsorship from Centrify, seeks insights into senior-level thinking on this issue, including current cybersecurity priorities and the perceived degree of alignment between threats and solutions.

Fighting Fraud with Intelligent Access Management

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Oct 26, 2017
These days, fraudsters have it easier than ever. The volume of devices commonly in use and the numbers of applications and websites accessed daily have grown so large so fast that organizations can be overwhelmed in trying to protect their resources and their users. The result? Innocent—but sometimes devastating—errors. An organization may deploy only partial measures to protect against threats. And users may actively work around protection to avoid cumbersome security procedures.

Purchase And Deploy Security In The Cloud - Wherever Your Data May Be

Published By: IBM APAC     Published Date: Aug 22, 2017
For any sized organization, securing data and networks today is a daunting task. New vulnerabilities are discovered almost daily; new malware strains are developed as soon as a detection script is written for the old ones; and cybercriminals can buy prepackaged exploit kits on the Darknet backed by professional support teams. As a security analyst, you need more than a few point solutions designed to defend the network’s edge. You need visibility, perspective and an innate sense of when things just don’t seem right.

The State of Malware Detection & Prevention

Published By: Cyphort     Published Date: Jun 28, 2016
We are pleased to present the findings of The State of Malware Detection & Prevention sponsored by Cyphort. The study reveals the difficulty in preventing and detecting malware and advanced threats. The IT function also seems to lack the information and intelligence necessary to update senior executives on cybersecurity risks. We surveyed 597 IT and IT security practitioners in the U.S. who have responsibility for directing cybersecurity activities and/or investments within their organization. All respondents have a network-based malware detection tool or are familiar with this type of tool.

Dyre malware games the test

Published By: Vectra Networks     Published Date: Aug 03, 2015
The Dyre family of banking malware is back in the news after researchers recently observed that the malware incorporated tricks to avoid detection in malware sandboxes. Previously, Dyre was most notable for targeting high value bank accounts, including business accounts, and incorporating sophisticated social engineering components to overcome the 2-factor authentication used by most banks.

Stepping up the Battle Against Advanced Threats WP

Published By: IBM     Published Date: Mar 11, 2015
The primary approaches used to fight advanced threats over the past several years simply aren’t effective. Traditional methods such as user education, vulnerability patching, and malware detection have failed to protect enterprises against the current threat landscape. Attackers continuously develop sophisticated tactics and evasion techniques to bypass the latest protection methods, requiring the security industry to find a different approach to malware protection. Trusteer has pioneered a new cybercrime prevention approach that provides unparalleled protection against spear-phishing, drive-by downloads and advanced, information-stealing malware.
