The Application Attack Threat Landscape - After Log4J
Sean Flynn - Director of Security Technology and Strategy, Akamai
About this talk
Modern web applications have become complex, heavily reliant on APIs for virtually every online interaction. This complexity brings with it the potential for new entry points for hackers and unfortunately more overhead for the business to manage and track.
Akamai’s Director of Security Technology and Strategy, Sean Flynn, takes us behind the scenes of how attackers look for new vulnerabilities and used obfuscation to prolong Log4J zero-day attacks.
In this webinar, you will also learn about:
- A new reflection/amplification distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) vector with a record-breaking potential amplification ratio of 4,294,967,296:1
- Why do attackers focus more on APIs than traditional applications
- What companies can do to stay ahead of future threats
