NETSCOUT Threat Intelligence Report 2H 2018: Dawn of the Terrorbit Era

When it comes to the global threat landscape, the second half of 2018 revealed the equivalent of attacks on steroids, as attackers bulked up existing tactics, rapidly evolved new ones, and applied smart business techniques to vastly accelerate their growth rate. IoT devices were attacked within five minutes of being plugged into the internet. Nation-state APT group activity ratcheted up in volume and targets while existing actors continued to innovate, including the first observed use of Chrome extensions to enable persistence in the STOLEN PENCIL campaign. Finally, the use of business practices such as the affiliate model empowered crimeware such as Danabot to achieve rapid global targeting. Please join our presenter to discuss:

  • Nation-state Innovation in APT: new groups discovered and new TTPs combining custom tools and crimeware
  • Crimeware goes to B School: we saw a robust marketplace driven by well-stocked innovation pipelines from rapidly growing organizations
  • Understanding the ever-changing DDoS landscape – key vertical targeting and techniques
