The ransomware ecosystem: how it functions and how to protect against it

Recently INTERPOL issued a warning about the increase of ransomware threat in the time of the pandemic. According to them, there is a significant increase in the number of attempted ransomware attacks against key organizations and infrastructure engaged in the virus response.

In fact, ransomware has been recognized as one of the most significant threats for businesses for a few years now, but not many actually know how profoundly it has developed over the past few years. As massive b2c ransomware campaigns ceased to be attractive, cyber criminals turned to those, who actually pay up – organizations.

In this webinar, Ivan Kwiatkowski, senior security researcher at Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) will explain how:

•the ransomware and cybercrime ecosystem is now structured
•the infection process in organizations takes place
•to secure your data and avoid falling victim to ransomware

  • Online payment details theft via web analytics service: how to stay safe Recorded: Jul 7 2020 13 mins
    Victoria Vlasova, malware analyst at Kaspersky
    In June 2020, Kaspersky researchers uncovered a new technique for stealing users’ payment information on online shopping websites — a type of attack known as web skimming. Web skimming is a popular practice used by attackers to steal users’ credit card details from the payment pages of online stores, whereby attackers inject pieces of code into the source code of the website. This malicious code then collects the data inputted by visitors to the site (i.e. payment account logins or credit card numbers) and sends the harvested data to the address specified by attackers in the malicious code.

    This time, cybercriminals invented a new technique, abusing the capabilities of Google Analytics. By registering for web analytics accounts and injecting these accounts’ tracking code into the websites’ source code, attackers can collect users’ credit card details. About two dozen online stores worldwide were compromised using this method.

    In this webinar you will find out:

    •How cybercriminals manage to gather personal details via the web analytics service
    •Technical analysis of the new malware and its features
    •Best practices to avoid such threats

    Read the full report about the new threat on Securelist: https://securelist.com/web-skimming-with-google-analytics/97414/

    Disclaimer: Kaspersky has informed Google of the problem, and they confirmed they have ongoing investments into resolving the issue.

  • Best practices: how to find network threats effectively using NIDS Recorded: Jun 10 2020 30 mins
    Tatyana Shishkova, security analyst at Kaspersky
    Protecting corporate networks is challenging. Large organizations are attacked daily and more often than not, the speed at which you find threats entering the network is vital. Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDS) are key components that help protect the network perimeter and analyze network traffic. But how can they be used most effectively?


    In this webinar Tatyana Shishkova, a security researcher at Kaspersky, who specializes in threat detection, will share her expertise and cover the following topics:

    ∙ What NIDS is, how it works and where to start
    ∙ What is possible with threat detection
    ∙ Best practices and Suricata rules
    ∙ NIDS limitations and possible workarounds
  • History of Hackers: How Hackers Changed Everything Recorded: Jun 7 2020 5 mins
    David Jacoby, Security Evangelist at Kaspersky

    Watch a quick overview of how hacking has changed over the past decade, presented by David Jacoby, a security evangelist from Kaspersky’s GReAT, at #SASatHome, the online version of the renowned Security Analyst Summit, which took place on 28-30, April.
  • Combining code similarity with YARA to find goodies Recorded: Jun 3 2020 62 mins
    Costin Raiu, Director Global Research & Analysis Team (GReAT)
    #SASatHome, the online version of a renowned Security Analyst Summit took place on 28-30, April. Watch one of the highlights of the event – the talk by Costin Raiu, the director of Kaspersky’s Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT) dedicated to combining code similarity with YARA.

    There is little doubt that YARA has changed the threat hunting game. According to Costin, this is for a couple of reasons, between them: it is easy to learn, easy to use and easy to deploy. Indeed, pretty much anyone can learn and start writing YARA rules! Thanks to platforms such as VTMIS, threat hunting with YARA can help uncover threats against your organization and greatly improve your defenses and awareness. Yet, while many can do strings, code-based YARA rules are somehow rare.

    In this talk, we combine code similarity with YARA to live hunt for some fresh stuff. And while at it, we’ll be learning who is NN and why does he keep losing at Chess?
  • Preventing cybercrime with SOC augmentation Recorded: May 28 2020 37 mins
    Ewan Hubac, Product Manager, EclecticIQ; Artem Karasev, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Kaspersky
    The connected world is under constant threat of cybercrime. As enterprises further their digital transformation, they need to constantly adapt to the rapidly evolving cyberthreat landscape, while weighing up cyber-risks against overall business goals and priorities. Staying ahead of cyberthreats is a race against time. Having the right people, technology and processes is no longer enough. Cybersecurity practices, like SOC and incident response, need to be augmented with timely, relevant, and actionable cyberthreat intelligence.

    From informing strategic decisions to boosting incident containment and response, cyberthreat intelligence supports security leaders and practitioners in their mission to protect their businesses and support growth. Some key elements to that mission are:

    - Informing executive management of the current threat landscape and demonstrating return on investment

    - Shifting the enterprise security posture from reactive to proactive, and preventing breaches even before they occur, through seamless integration of technology, processes and data

    - Having all relevant information in a single pane of glass to facilitate threat hunting and response, and contribute to incident management and prioritization activity

    The Kaspersky and EclecticIQ collaboration on their portfolio of integrations guarantees high-end Cyber Threat Intelligence analysis, empowering organizations to stay ahead of cybercrime. Join us on a live webinar to learn more about the strength of our combined portfolio and offering, with a live product demonstration.

  • Zero-days in the wild: 2019 retrospective Recorded: Apr 21 2020 47 mins
    Boris Larin, senior security researcher at Kaspersky
    Attacks that involve zero-day vulnerabilities remain among the most dangerous with more and more investment into zero-day exploits taking place in the criminal world. Zero-day vulnerabilities involve the exploitation of an undiscovered and unfixed weaknesses, which makes them particularly difficult to detect and prevent. If such a vulnerability is found by criminals first, it can be used to create an exploit – a special malicious program that will have open access to an entire system. This “hidden threat” attack scenario is widely used by sophisticated actors in APT attacks and was used to conduct a number of incidents in 2019.
    Security researcher Boris Larin will present an overview of four zero-day vulnerabilities detected and disclosed by Kaspersky in 2019, following mechanisms that detected the exploit, which included Miscosoft Windows OS and Google Chrome exploits.
    In this session, Boris will share:
    •What is happening in the zero-day market
    •What framework was often used to implement many zero-day exploits
    •What work was done by him and his team when working on the following vulnerabilities:
    CVE-2019-0797, CVE-2019-0859, CVE-2019-1458, CVE-2019-13720
