Advanced persistent threats (APTs) have been central to network security discussions in the past few years, with many organizations implementing new solutions to protect themselves from this determined type of malware. Yet, cybercriminals continue to be effective in penetrating the network defenses of even the strongest security systems, including some very high-profile enterprises. One of the dirty little secret weapons hackers use to bypass security systems and penetrate even the most locked-down networks are advanced evasion techniques (AETs). While AETs are not a secret among the hacking community—where they are well known and have been in widespread use for several years—there are misunderstandings, misinterpretation, and ineffective safeguards in use by the security experts charged with blocking AETs.
