About this talk

In this webinar, our experts will present one practical case of such attacks called "Sidewinder Targeted Attack." It targets victims by intercepting location information reported from ad libs, which can be used to locate targeted areas such as a CEO's office or some specific conference rooms. When the target is identified, "Sidewinder Targeted Attack" exploits popular vulnerabilities in ad libs, such as JavaScript-binding-over-HTTP or dynamic-loading-over-HTTP. Join us for this for this live session to learn: •How a Sidewinder Targeted Attack can disrupt and hijack the network where targeted victims reside •The risks of remote attacks on Android devices through apps downloaded from Google Play •Different forms of attacks to Android vulnerabilities •Current trends and best practices around mobile security
