Silver Terrier: That Nigerian Prince has evolved his game

Presented by

Alexander Hinchliffe, Threat Intelligence Analyst, Unit 42, EMEA

About this talk

Correctly assess and protect yourself against modern Nigerian threat actors. Join threat intelligence analysts Peter Renals and Simon Conant from Unit 42 for a discussion about malware attacks from Nigerian threat actors, dubbed “SilverTerrier.” This group has grown significantly since 2014, from fewer than 100 attacks to a current rate of 5,000–8,000 per month. These attacks are largely victim-agnostic, spanning all major industry verticals and focusing more on businesses than individuals. You’ll learn about: - How Nigerian threat actors have successfully employed commodity malware tools with precision, to target many organizations at scale. - The financial impact of these attacks. - Techniques utilized to disguise commodity malware, including business email compromise and spoofing, and how to prevent them.
