Protecting Containerized Workloads against Kaiji and Emerging Threats

Presented by

Paul Litvak, Shaul Holtzman

About this talk

Kaiji is our researchers’ latest discovery, written from scratch using Go programming language to target IoT devices and Linux-based servers. Instead of relying on exploiting unpatched flaws, this botnet spreads exclusively through brute-force attacks against publicly accessible SSH servers. Kaiji has been in the news recently infecting unsecured Docker servers to then carry out DDoS attacks. Docker servers, which are a type of containerized workload, are relatively convenient to deploy in the cloud, making them an increasingly popular choice for enterprises but also an attractive target for attackers. In this webinar, we will present an analysis of the Kaiji malware and explain how to protect your containerized workloads against this botnet and other emerging Linux threats. You will learn: 1. Why monitoring the runtime environment is the key to preventing most cyber attacks on your cloud infrastructure 2. How to protect your cloud workloads against Kaiji and other emerging threats
