About this talk

LOLBAS leverage legitimate binaries and scripts for malicious purposes making them hard to catch. They also happen to be one of the growing trends in cybersecurity attacks and are found in most cyber attack campaigns. Armed with this knowledge, Pentera Labs set out to find new official LOLBAS, increasing the number of known LOLBAS downloaders by 30%. Follow Pentera researcher Nir Chako’s journey as he traces the path to identifying new LOLBAS executables and functions manually, and then as he writes the automation to find more at scale. This session will help Red Teamers uncover their own LOLBAS gems, while Blue Teamers can learn how to proactively protect against these new threats.
