About this talk

Operating from the belief that education is the most powerful weapon, one of our foremost security researchers will provide an analysis on a recently documented stealthy malware family named Stegoloader. Our upcoming webcast will unveil the sophistication of Stegoloader’s characteristics which make it hard to analyze and detect. This webcast will help you understand the nature of Stegoloader in order to counter it more efficiently and effectively. Pierre-Marc Bureau, Senior Security Researcher from the Counter Threat Unit (CTU), will discuss how Stegoloader cloaks its main component as a harmless Portable Network Image (PNG) while it extracts and executes malicious code hidden within an image. Although CTU researchers have not observed Stegoloader being used in targeted attacks, it has significant information stealing capabilities. Malware authors are constantly looking for ways to adapt and improve detection mechanisms, which makes Stegoloader a prime candidate for cyber-criminals arsenals. Learn how digital steganography may be a new trend for threat actors globally. In this webcast, you will: - Gain insight on when and where Stegoloader was first encountered. - Learn characteristics of Stegoloader and how it operates. - Understand digital steganography trends and how to detect and remediate.
