Exploit kits, which first became popular in 2006, are used to automate the exploitation of vulnerabilities on victims’ machines, most commonly while users are browsing the web. Over the past decade they have become an extremely popular means for criminal groups to distribute mass malware or remote access tools (RAT), because they lower the barrier to entry for attackers and can enable opportunistic attacks at scale. To understand this phenomenon, we must understand the ecosystem that surrounds exploit kits, including the actors, campaigns and terminology involved.

Before Microsoft released Microsoft XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), most attackers would compromise a computer system by simply attacking it with known vulnerabilities or "bugs" that could allow the attacker to gain some level of control over the system. Newer attack methods were starting to be seen where the attacker would take advantage of vulnerabilities within the Internet browser itself.

BEC attacks are a growing threat to businesses because they prey on vulnerabilities that can’t be patched: people. That’s why employee training, financial controls, and especially technology are the keys to a strong defense and timely response. You need need a solution that does not solely depend on reputation and basic email filtering. With granular controls, advanced email solutions can identify and quarantine impostor emails before they reach an employee’s inbox.

New network vulnerabilities appear constantly and the ability for IT security professionals to handle new flaws, fix misconfigurations and protect against threats requires constant attention. However, with shrinking budgets and growing responsibilities, time and resources are at constrained. Therefore, sifting through pages of raw vulnerability information yields few results and makes it impossible to accurately measure your security posture.

Welcome to Web Application Security For Dummies! Web applications have become the Achilles heel of IT security. Web application vulnerabilities are now the most prevalent at more than 55 per cent of all server vulnerability disclosures. This figure doesn't include vulnerabilities in custom-developed web applications, so it may be just the tip of the iceberg. This book is all about understanding how to quickly find and fix vulnerabilities in web applications. The goal is to prevent attackers from gaining control over the application and obtaining easy access to the server, database, and other back-end IT resources.

Vulnerabilities in web applications are a major vector for cyber-crime. In large organizations, vulnerable web applications comprised 54% of all hacking breaches and led to 39% of compromised records, according to the 2012 Data Breach Investigation Report by Verizon Business. This paper describes how large enterprises can effectively discover, catalog and scan web applications to control this major risk vector as part of their organization’s overall vulnerability management program.

A zero-day threat is a vulnerability that becomes known to the vendor on the same day it becomes known to the public, meaning IT assets targeted by a zero-day threat won't have a patch available when it's needed. However, zero-day attacks operate in a realm of the probable - they work only because there are exploitable vulnerabilities within IT systems. Many of these can, and should be prevented. This guide describes why organizations are vulnerable to zero-day attacks, and what you can do to add a zero-day offense to your existing vulnerability management processes to protect your organization's assets and data.
