What Happens in an Attack?

Presented by

Pierre-Marc Bureau, Malware Researcher at ESET

About this talk

Most Internet users have been in contact with malicious software (malware) and most of us understand these threats should be avoided. Far less people understand what happens when a computer is attacked, more precisely, what are the objectives of the attackers and how these attacks could affect your business? We will present various attacks that have been recently witnessed which illustrate the different motivations of malware creators and operators. We will also show how banking trojans such as Win32/Gataka can attack on alternative operating systems such as OSX/Flashback. Finally, we will cover cases of cyber espionage with the case of ACAD/Medre. Join Pierre-Marc Bureau, Mallware Researcher at ESET as he shows what happens in an attack and how to protect your business.
