Flamer: The most complex malware threat since Stuxnet and Duqu

Candid Wüest, Principal Software Engineer & Orla Cox, Sr Security Operations Manager, Security Response , Symantec
The latest high-profile Internet threat is called Flamer. As with Stuxnet and Duqu, this code was not likely to have been written by a single individual but by an organised, well-funded group of people working to a clear set of directives.

While our analysis is currently ongoing, the primary functionality is to obtain information and data. This is not unique and by itself would not make Flamer significant. But when combined with the complexity of the code, the identified targets, and the possible link to recent threats described by the Iran National CERT, Flamer becomes a very noteworthy threat.

Join our Symantec’s Security Response experts in this webcast which we will discuss the latest information about the threat and what it means in terms of the wider threat landscape.

  • Are attacks on your network and users still occurring, despite continuing efforts to stay on top of security? What impact would malware have on your business if it was able to gain internal access and steal sensitive information?

    Without solutions that can disrupt the chain of events that occur during an advanced attack, many businesses are still being infiltrated and losing data every day. This webinar will cover the best practices in disrupting attacks with content security solutions - connected to optimize protection.
    Join this webinar as:
    •You will learn the tactics used by attackers today to infiltrate businesses
    •You will hear about the leading technologies available to disrupt advanced attacks
    •You will walk away with the knowledge to assess your own environment, and optimize your security
    Businesses today face more advanced attacks than we’ve ever seen in the past – and defending against them takes a connected approach which can disrupt the multiple points of infiltration and exfiltration used in the process of a breach. With most attacks seen in the wild using phishing emails to reach their target, a web link or malicious file to deliver a payload, and an outbound stream of communication to exfiltrate data – implementing a Secure Email Gateway, Secure Web Gateway, and Data Loss Prevention technology together will provide a barrier difficult for even the most advanced attacks to overcome.

    Don’t miss this webinar if you have a stake in the security of your most valuable information, or are directly responsible for the implementation of security solutions to protect it. Register now for this 30 minute webinar.
  • As most IT Pros are aware, as of April 8th, 2014, Microsoft will stop releasing security patches for Windows XP. Unfortunately, most folks will not be able to migrate all Windows XP machines by that deadline. How will you limit the security risks posed by these now vulnerable assets? Join us for this webinar outlining practical strategies to help you cover your assets.
    In this session we'll cover:
    The primary attack vectors you need to consider
    Immediate actions you can take to limit the exposure of your XP assets
    Warning signs to watch out for that could signal an attack
    How to closely monitor your vulnerable assets with AlienVault USM
  • Learn from ING how one of the largest financial services corporations implemented ReputationDV (RepDV) from HP TippingPoint to proactively secure their network without compromising performance. RepDV, a security intelligence tool, monitors inbound and outbound communications to identify and block undesirable hosts. Updated every two hours, this robust security intelligence feed searches through hundreds of thousands of known malicious IPv4, IPv6, and DNS names and assigns a threat score of 1 to 100. Rated based on the analysis of the source, category, or threat, this score helps block traffic that poses a potential security risk. ING has had amazing success with HP TippingPoint RepDV:
    - 2 million connections blocked in 15 months
    - 75% decrease in total malware related incidents
    - 0 false positives
    ING will cover how deploying HP TippingPoint security intelligence helped simplify their network security strategy while increasing reliability and effectiveness.
  • Advanced targeted cyber attacks have hit some of the world’s largest businesses. The attacks weren't blocked because they don’t match any known attack signature. Each one is unique, custom created to penetrate the target network and steal data.

  • Cyberspace is typically the prime mechanism for conducting business. It also plays a key role in the socio-cultural lives of staff, customers and suppliers. By the end of 2013, revelations about how governments had been surrendering commercial and personal privacy in the name of national security left trust very badly shaken. And the timing couldn’t be much worse: many CEOs are ramping up their demands to take even greater advantage of cyberspace. So if this is where things are now, how will all of this look by 2016? How will new threats hurtling over the horizon complicate matters even further? Just what will organisations be able to rely on? And most importantly, are they powerless or can they do something now? This webcast spotlights the threats we'll be dealing with over the coming 24 months along with advice on the best ways of handling them.

    2013 – året av Megahacks

    Varje år släpper Symantec en omfattande rapport om de internethot som har ägt rum under det gångna året. Årets rapport visar bl a en omfattande beteendeförändring hos nätbrottslingar, där flera månaders förberedelser tycks ligga till grund för de allt större intrången.

    “Ett megahack kan vara lika mycket värt som 50 mindre” säger Per Hellqvist, säkerhetsexpert hos Symantec. Samtidigt som attackerna fortsätter att vara lika sofistikerade som tidigare ser vi att de riktade attackerna är än mer riktade än tidigare och pågår under längre tid. Nätbrottslingarna är helt enkelt mer fokuserade och uthålliga.
