2017 State of Malware

Abstract:
In 2016, we finally saw the headlines catch up with the hype. Cyberattacks and cybersecurity, or a lack thereof, grabbed media attention on both the corporate and consumer sides, even becoming a key issue in the US presidential election. In this respect, you could say that everyone, even those who have never logged on, was affected by cyberattacks and hacking in 2016.

Key takeaways include:

  • Ransomware grabbed headlines and became the favorite attack methodology used against businesses
  • Ad fraud malware, led by Kovter malware, exceeded ransomware detections at times and poses a substantial threat to consumers and businesses
  • Botnets infected and recruited Internet of Things (IoT) devices to launch massive DDoS attacks

Combating Malvertising, Ransomware, and The Rise of Cyber Threats

Abstract:
According to ISACA’s 2015 Global Cybersecurity Status Report, only 38% of global organizations feel that they are prepared to handle a sophisticated cyberattack. Unsurprisingly, PWC’s “The Global State of Information Security Survey 2016” further reveals that despite the detection of a 38% increase of security incidents from 2014 to 2015, many organizations do not have the proper framework to protect themselves against cyber threats. It’s clear that in today’s relentlessly evolving digital landscape, attackers are constantly discovering new and innovative ways to infiltrate enterprise systems.

As the rise of ransomware, malvertising, and other cyber threats continue to rise, CIOS and IT leaders’ roles within the organization are rapidly evolving, as they are faced with the task of properly detecting and Combating these threats. To do this, they must continually assess questions such as: Are we aware of our top weaknesses? Are we fully briefed on the latest developments within the ransomware and malvertising space? And should a threat emerge, do we have a plan?

The Hidden Enemy: Malvertising and Ransomware

Malvertising is increasing in sophistication and prevalence, and often being used to distribute ransomware. According to the FBI, criminals are netting an estimated $325–500 million a year through these scams. But while the FBI is warning of a rise in ransomware, they are at a loss when it comes to how to handle it: “The ransomware is that good,” says Joseph Bonavolonta, the Assistant Special Agent in Charge of the FBI’s CYBER and Counterintelligence Program in its Boston office. “To be honest, we often advise people just to pay the ransom.”

As malvertising-based infections (including ransomware) in businesses increase, questions will arise on who is accountable – ad networks, site owners, or owners of the ad content? If your company is a victim, and the FBI is just advising to pay the ransom, can you begin to seek legal remedy against the ad networks or content owners that were the vector for the infection?

This webinar gives the audience a better understanding of the impact of malvertising and ransomware. It will also tackle some of the biggest misconceptions, latest tactics/incidents, how these attacks are delivered and why your company may be at risk without you even knowing it.

  • The growth in malvertising and malvertising-based ransomware
  • A better understanding of the tactics and techniques cybercriminals use to deliver and cover up their malvertising campaigns
  • Tools and solutions to help detect, eliminate, and protect your business

Launch, Detect, Evolve: The Mutation of Malware Webinar

In order to hit their targets, malware developers need to constantly evolve their tactics. This evolution is frequently done in very small incremental changes to known malware attacks. Today, malicious developers know their malware has a short half-life before detection. In order to optimize their efforts, cyber criminals now modify their "products" just enough to evade detection a little bit longer.

Join this intensive webinar to learn:
New malware tactics researchers and analysts are confronting on a daily basis
How cyber criminals are using Crypters to evade detection
What you can do to proactively protect your business from future challenges

Psychological Warfare: How CyberCriminals Mess With Your Mind

Today's cyber attacks utilize themost complex threat technologies to infiltrate users' computers. Yet much ofthe danger actually lies outside of the code. When attackers combine atechnological attack with psychology—a social engineering tactic similar toadvertising—their reach and effectiveness increases greatly. While most of thesecurity industry is focused on employing new monitoring systems and patchingsecurity holes, at the end of the day, the ultimate target for cyber criminals is the users themselves.

Your Layered Security Defenses are Riddled with Holes...
Here's what to do instead

As attacks became increasingly diverse, numerous and sophisticated, organizations need to take a multi-layered approach to security that goes well beyond traditional endpoint anti-virus and other point solutions. In this webcast, independent information security expert, Kevin Beaver, and Adam Kujawa, Head of Malware Intelligence with Malwarebytes will discuss the holes in a typical layered security approach, share stories, and outline specific technical, procedural, and human defense measures you have to have in order to have a truly successful information security program.

Understanding Zero-Day Attacks and Gaining Control

Zero-days are no longer only used in targeted attacks or by nation states. Mainstream exploit kits are also leveraging them to distribute some of the most vicious malware, such as ransomware. The threat is real and the business risks are immeasurable. In this webcast, independent information security expert, Kevin Beaver, and Jerome Segura, Sr. Security Researcher with Malwarebytes will discuss the big-picture challenges and solutions associated with zero-day exploits and malware against the enterprise. You'll learn specific ways to address your zero-day risks along with how to effectively block and respond to exploit attempts on your network in order to minimize the impact to your business.

An Inside View of a Zero-Day Campaign

At a recent SC Congress eSymposium, Malwarebytes' malware crushing experts delivered an insightful look inside a zero-day malware attack campaign. Since traditional anti-virus approaches leverage lists of known malware to protect against attacks, they can become minimally effective at protecting against zero-day campaigns which are being introduced into the cyber ecosystem for the first time.
