In this white paper, John Pescatore of SANS Institute explores how DDoS is used as part of advanced targeted attacks (ATAs) and describes how DDoS detection and prevention tools and techniques can be used against ATAs as well. Today’s DDoS attacks, as damaging as they are, sometimes mask even more threatening and dangerous advanced targeted threats. The good news is that some of the same tools that can detect the footprints of DDoS attacks can also find the telltale signs of ATAs. To be successful, though, enterprises need to coordinate their use of both types of logs and adjust their monitoring parameters correctly. They must also eliminate operational gaps, such as unclear lines of security authority, and limit the use of managed security services that can deprive enterprise security managers of the data they need to detect and stop DDoS attacks and ATAs.

Today’s threat landscape has forced us, once again, to evolve how we think about and deliver effective security to protect endpoints (PCs, Macs, Linux, mobile devices, etc). Malware today is either on an endpoint or it’s headed there. Advanced malware is dynamic, can compromise environments from an array of attack vectors, take endless form factors, launch attacks over time, and can quickly exfiltrate data from endpoints. Such malware, including polymorphic and environmentally aware malware, is very good at masking itself and evading traditional security tools, which can lead to a breach. As a result, it’s no longer a question of “if” malware can penetrate defenses and get onto endpoints, it’s a question of “when”.

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.

While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

Distributed denial-of-service attacks may be organized by type into a taxonomy that includes network attacks (layers 3 and 4), session attacks (layers 5 and 6), application attacks (layer 7), and business logic attacks. Each type may be matched with the best F5 technology for mitigating that attack. This paper explains how taken together, the F5 BIG-IP portfolio of products provides effective anti-attack technology for each layer of the taxonomy and can also defend against specific attack tools, network reconnaissance, and low-bandwidth asymmetric attacks.

Today's threat landscape has never been more challenging for federal agencies. Governments face a growing torrent of cyber attacks that are growing increasingly sophisticated, stealthy, and dangerous. Legacy signature-based solutions and file-based sandbox analysis cannot detect these advanced attacks, let alone stop them. Without advanced identification and remediation tools, agencies can go weeks or even months before discovering system breaches - long after the damage is done. This paper outlines: The malware ""kill-chain"" model used in today's advanced attacks; What capabilities federal agencies need to combat advanced threats; A reimagined approach to IT security.

While there has been improvement in the amount of time an attacker spends in a network before detection — decreasing from years to days in many cases — the ongoing delay illustrates just how elusive attackers still are compared to an organization's ability to detect a problem. IDC believes that actionable threat intelligence is going to be a significant factor in improving this metric. Threat intelligence has historically been seen as a complex set of activities reserved for security operations centers (SOCs) and advanced security analysts. The tools to collect and apply threat intelligence have generally not existed commercially and the ability to integrate threat intelligence into the traditional security workflow has not been available. Over the last few years, threat intelligence has been growing in importance within the security workflow.

System vulnerabilities, ransomware, malware, intrusions, and other malicious activities are on the rise, showing that today’s cybersecurity professionals are hard-pressed to keep enterprises secure. Although threats are growing in sophistication and attack vectors are expanding, many of the intrusions and cyber attacks happening today are simply a result of improper protections being put in place, systems going unpatched, or weak security policies. While much of the blame is being placed on cybersecurity professionals, the real blame should often be placed upon the tools and policies that many of those professionals have come to trust and the complexity that comes with them.
