Antivirus, are you happy? Should not

Are you happy with the antivirus that τε; Περισσότερο από τις μισές επιθέσεις του περασμένου έτους ήταν fileless ή χρησιμοποιούσαν τεχνικές “malware-”, καθώς οι hackers στρέφονται ολοένα και περισσότερο στις κλοπές διαπιστευτηρίων για να παραβιάσουν εταιρικά .


Οι τακτικές χωρίς κακόβουλο they accounted for 51% of attacks in 2019, compared to 40% the previous year, although this figure was driven by a sharp increase in attacks targeting North America.

About 74% of the attacks in the region did not use malware, while these techniques accounted for 25% of the Indo-Pacific attacks, according to the Global Threat Report 2020 of CrowdStrike.

The evaluation of the annual s for the threat landscape is based on της εταιρείας δεδομένων που συλλέχθηκαν από περισσότερα από 3 τρισεκατομμύρια γεγονότα εβδομαδιαίως σε 176 , and consultations from its intelligence team, which monitors national agency hackers, hacktivists and many others.

The growing popularity of attacks without malware shows us the need not to rely solely on anti-virus tools.

Οι επιθέσεις χωρίς κακόβουλο λογισμικό είναι αυτές που δεν χρειάζονται κάποια αρχεία στο δίσκο του θύματος. Θα μπορούσαν να είναι επιθέσεις όπου ο κακόβουλος κώδικας τρέχει από τη μνήμη, από το boot ή επιθέσεις ς διαπιστευτηρίων που απλά χρειάζονται να κάνετε ένα click σε ένα link. Οι επιθέσεις χωρίς κακόβουλο λογισμικό συνήθως απαιτούν διαφορετικές τεχνικές ανίχνευσης για τον εντοπισμό και την παρεμπόδισή τους, κάτι που καθιστά τα σημερινά antivirus εντελώς ανεπαρκή.

New methods also require new practices, as it is impossible to reach a new point using the same familiar path.

These attacks have come to remind us that there is always another way. New roads lead to new discoveries and of course the one who takes the risk wins first, if things go well. This applies to both sides (hackers-antivirus)

Future protections, then, should study the behavior of each of us who uses computer systems. Once they learn how the owner works they will be able to block behaviors that do not seem familiar, or at least ask the owner: is this happening, is it you?

This may sound like a science fiction script, but it's not that far off if you look at the growth in artificial intelligence and machine learning. It's impossible to fight smart threats with stupid antivirus designed just to compare virus samples.

Here is the good and bad news:

The emergence of cloud-based antiviruses is very encouraging (cloud). At present their technology is simple, as it continues to compare virus samples. But over the years, its computing power will help to run artificial intelligence and machine learning systems on each user's PC.

Only that the hackers once again have the lead. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
