The Real Culprit Behind SolarWinds: Remote Code Execution (International)

Presented by


About this talk

The SolarWinds attack exposed a bare belly across government entities, infrastructure and enterprises alike. A brutal security failure that relied on perimeter tools, threat hunting and prior knowledge to stop an attack – only to find that these tools were powerless to identify and stop a Remote Code Execution (RCE) exploit. The attack surface has grown exponentially, and workloads are the main target. Conventional security tools will not provide adequate protection against remote code execution attacks. Satya Gupta, CTO and Co-Founder of Virsec, discusses how the culprits infiltrated and deposited a backdoor into the well-protected SolarWinds software infrastructure, and then into the systems of tens of thousands of users in the SolarWinds supply chain. Learn how to identify and prevent Remote Code Execution attacks to protect your workloads wherever they reside.
