The Memory Attack Battleground

Presented by

Satya Gupta, CTO, Willy Leichter, VP, Virsec

About this talk

The multitude of recent cyberattacks have a number of things in common: they are sophisticated, multi-pronged, use fileless techniques, and target applications at in process memory – largely invisible to conventional security products. Attacks including WannaCry, Petya, NotPetya, SystemD, Industroyer, and Apache Struts all leveraged memory-based attacks to infiltrate, pivot, and hijack valuable data. What used to be viewed as arcane, theoretical attacks have now become easily accessible through the Shadow Brokers leak of advanced memory corruption tool kits. Learn from Virsec experts: •Why memory attacks are under the radar of most security •How to map correct memory usage and detect deviations •New models for protecting applications from the inside
