Today’s security appliances and agents must wait until malware reaches the perimeter or endpoint before they can detect or prevent it. OpenDNS arrests attacks earlier in the kill chain. Enforcing security at the DNS layer prevents a malicious IP connection from ever being established or a malicious file from ever being downloaded. This same DNS layer of network security can contain malware and any compromised system from exfiltrating data. Command & control (C2) callbacks to the attacker’s botnet infrastructure are blocked over any port or protocol. Unlike appliances, the cloud service protects devices both on and off the corporate network. Unlike agents, the DNS layer protects every device connected to the network — even IoT. It is the easiest and fastest layer of security to deploy everywhere.

DDoS attack size doubled in early 2018 after attackers discovered and employed a new, massive DDoS reflection and amplification method with the potential to multiply their attack resources by a factor of 500K. The attack vector, called memcached UDP reflection, uses resources freely exposed on the internet — no malware or botnet required.

Malicious botnets present multiple challenges to enterprises — some threaten security, and others merely impact performance or web analytics. A growing concern in the bot environment is the practice of credential stuffing, which capitalizes on both a bot’s ability to automate repeat attempts and the growing number of online accounts held by a single user. As bot technologies have evolved, so have their methods of evading detection. This report explains how the credential stuffing exploit challenges typical bot management strategies, and calls for a more comprehensive approach.

As signaling and scrubbing technology evolve (and as your solutions become more and more adaptable), DDoS attacks will become less effective and less attractive to would-be adversaries. The time will soon come when a 1 Tb attack from an IoT botnet will seem like a mere annoyance, rather than a catastrophic event—if you even notice it at all. So how do you get there faster? Plan ahead by designing a defense in-depth DDoS strategy and partner with a trusted security provider to handle the large attacks. Upfront preparation will pay off when the threat of DDoS attacks no longer keeps you up at night.

2017 was a momentous year in security, even though the DDoS landscape appeared to plateau. Maybe it was because Mirai hit so hard at the end of 2016 and the owners of other botnets were retooling to catch up. Maybe it was because news of large data breaches captured so many headlines, drawing the attention of both criminals and the public. Or maybe it is simply due to the cyclical nature of attack popularity that we have seen in the past. No matter the cause, our prediction is that the trend won’t continue in 2018, and it is not time to be complacent. The Mirai botnet is far from played out, as botnet creators are continuing to modify the source code for their individual needs and, with more connected platforms devices than ever, the Internet will continue to offer fertile ground for largescale attacks.

Until recently, security teams for organizations in many industries believed they didn’t need to worry about DDoS attacks, but the latest data from the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report indicates that businesses of all sizes in nearly every industry run the risk of being attacked.¹ IoT devices are increasingly compromised, recruited into botnets, and offered up by their creators as for-hire DDoS services. Additionally, there are numerous DDoS tools and services that are easily accessible and easy to use, even for the untechnical novice.

Because of widespread password reuse, Account Takeover (ATO) attacks have become an extremely lucrative business for cybercriminals. Organized crime rings are performing ATO attacks at a massive scale by leveraging botnet-infected armies to attempt credential-stuffing attacks against various web and mobile applications. Cyber criminals exploit compromised accounts for financial gain by pilfering financial or personally identifiable information (PII) directly or by selling access to these accounts on underground markets.

Das Mirai-Botnet nutzt Hunderttausende von internetfähigen Geräten, die nur über ein schwaches standardmäßiges Kennwort verfügen. Durch Installation von Malware übernimmt Mirai die Kontrolle über die Geräte und errichtet auf diese Weise eine weltumspannende Armee von infizierten Bots. Bis zum Zeitpunkt der Attacke durchsucht jedes betroffene Gerät das Internet nach weiteren angreifbaren Geräten und infiziert diese. Das Internet der Dinge besteht aus Milliarden von Geräten, die Daten senden und empfangen können und heutzutage fast überall anzutreffen sind. Private Sicherheits- und Unterhaltungsgeräte wie Internetkameras, digitale Videorecorder (DVR) und Router werden häufig mit der Mirai-Malware infiziert.

With an estimated 500,000 'Internet of Things' devices using default security credentials it's little wonder that the recent Mirai botnet's DDoS attack was able to cause such widespread disruption. But it isn't just the average home-user that's at risk. Organizations like yours are being targeted with bespoke malware in order to compromise your network and add your servers and devices to malicious botnets. This paper explains why these attacks are so successful, how a typical infection takes place and what security systems your organization should have in place to defend against botnet proliferation.

IT environments have become much more vulnerable as enterprise mobility, cloud services and “bring-your-own-everything” have broken down the defensible perimeter and added layers of complexity to securing the enterprise. At the same time, the nature of cyber threats has changed dramatically. Threat actors are well organized and well funded, and many of them are known to be supported by nation states. They have sophisticated technical skills which allow these actors to create custom malware for very specific targets, and they are relentless in pursuit of their objectives. Moreover, almost anyone with a malicious intent can purchase malware and rent botnets on the Dark Web, lowering the bar for criminal entities, nation states, and terrorists to use cyber as a weapon of choice towards their intended purpose.

Recent research from Kaspersky has revealed a massive criminal campaign that was able to infiltrate more than 100 different banks and steal upwards of $1 billion from the affected institutions. Kaspersky dubbed this operation the Carbanak APT due to a connection between the malware used in the attacks and the now infamous Carberp banking botnet. You may recall the headlines in 2013 that revealed the Carberp source code had been leaked into the wild, making it accessible to virtually any would-be criminal group that may want it. The accessibility of Carberp source code could easily have provided a starting point for the Carbanak as they built their malware.

Certain types of diseases seem to only occur within certain national boundaries. Malware is not one of them. A formidable threat to enterprise security since the 1980s, cybercrime is a truly global phenomenon, and no business is safe from its reach. A brief look at the history of malware attacks reveals a degree of variance within the virtual threat landscape that makes pinpointing and stopping such attacks extremely difficult. As the historic virus examples illustrate, the malware problem has been and will continue to be a constant threat. Since an offensive line against cybercrime is not possible, enterprises need to prepare the best defense they can.
