About this talk

On April 14 and 15, 2021, Kaspersky technologies detected a wave of highly targeted attacks against multiple companies, which involved the use of Windows and Google Chrome zero-day exploits. The attacks were carried out by PuzzleMaker, a previously unknown advanced persistent threat (APT) actor. Zero-day vulnerabilities involve the exploitation of an undiscovered and unfixed weaknesses, which makes them particularly difficult to detect and prevent. With attacks that involve zero-day vulnerabilities remaining among the most dangerous ones, and more criminals deferring to their use, detecting such vulnerabilities and swiftly responding to attacks that exploit them is of utmost importance. In this webcast, Boris Larin, a senior security researcher at Global Research and Analysis Team (GReAT), Kaspersky who specializes in zero-day hunting, and his colleague Oleg Gorobets, senior product marketing manager at Kaspersky, speak about zero-day exploits and reveal: • What happened in the latest zero-day campaign discovered by Kaspersky • How the discovery of this zero-day exploit occurred. • How to protect from zero-day exploits and how Kaspersky’s technologies help to detect such threats. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in the Q&A session at the end of the webinar.
