The cyberattacks of 2017 proved more numerous, sophisticated, and ruthless than in years past. Threat actors, armed with knowledge stolen from the CIA and tools lifted from the NSA, demonstrated an elevated level of proficiency. WannaCry and NotPetya, two prominent threats from last year, successfully exploited these stolen assets in their assault on systems worldwide. As 2017 progressed, new opportunities developed in ransomware-as-a-service (RaaS), opening the gates of malware-for-profit to everyone. Advancements in fileless attacks provided new ways for threats to hide from once reliable detection methods. Malware features such as polymorphism continued to play a powerful role in evading traditional defenses. The victims of cybercrime ranged from private businesses to the fundamental practices of democracy. France and the United States saw significant data breaches during their recent presidential elections. Several high-profile companies lost their customers’ personally identifiable information to cyberattacks, blemishing their brands and costing them untold millions in recovery operations. This report contains an overview of the threat trends and malware families Cylance's customers faced in 2017. This information is shared with the goal of assisting security practitioners, researchers, and individuals in our collective battle against emerging and evolving cyberthreats.

While advanced persistent threats and malware still plague some victims, it is ransomware that is still gaining real traction in today’s cybersecurity landscape. The EternalBlue flaw that took over the news in May 2017 rose to popularity as a result of its inclusion in the data leaked by The Shadow Brokers. Utilized in multiple attacks alongside the also-released DoublePulsar exploit, including the installation of cryptocurrency miner Adylkuzz, the exploits are just the tip of the cyberwarfare tools The Shadow Brokers are claiming to have in their arsenal. The latest EternalBlue and DoublePulsar based attacks, delivering the WannaCry Ransomware, have so far been hugely damaging to healthcare organizations while also impacting over 200,000 endpoints in 150 countries. WannaCry-WanaCryptor 2.0 was coupled with the EternalBlue exploit, allowing it to automatically propagate itself to vulnerable machines across the Internet. While not technically advanced, the use of EternalBlue and DoubleP

Fileless attacks surged in 2017, largely due to their ability to bypass traditional antivirus solutions. Last year was host to several fileless malware victories. OceanLotus Group infiltrated Asian corporations during Operation Cobalt Kitty, and conducted nearly six months of fileless operations before detection. Ransomware hall-of-famers Petya and WannaCry both implemented fileless techniques in their kill chains. Every major player in information security agrees that fileless attacks are difficult to stop, and the threats are growing worse. Abandoning files is a logical and tactical response to traditional AV solutions which have overcommitted to file-intensive and signature-based blacklists. What can security solutions offer when there are no infected files to detect? How will a blacklist stop an aggressor that only uses legitimate system resources? The security landscape is changing and the divide between traditional AV products and next-generation security solutions is growing wider by the day. Cylance® has built a reputation on security driven by artificial intelligence and provides a frontline defense against fileless malware. This document details how Cylance protects organizations.

In the not so distant past, the way we worked looked very different. Most work was done in an office, on desktops that were always connected to the corporate network. The applications and infrastructure that we used sat behind a firewall. Branch offices would backhaul traffic to headquarters, so they would get the same security protection. The focus from a security perspective was to secure the network perimeter. Today, that picture has changed a great deal.

Malware that encrypts a victim’s data until the extortionist’s demands are met is one of the most common forms of cybercrime. And the prevalence of ransomware attacks continues to increase. Cybercriminals are now using more than 50 different forms of ransomware to target and extort money from unsuspecting individuals and businesses. Ransomware attacks are pervasive. More than 4,000 ransomware attacks happen every day, and the volume of attacks is increasing at a rate of 300 percent annually.1 According to an IDT911 study, 84 percent of small and midsize businesses will not meet or report ransomware demands.2 No one is safe from ransomware, as it attacks enterprises and SMBs, government agencies, and individuals indiscriminately. While ransomware demands more than doubled in 2016 to $679 from $294 in 2015, the cost of remediating the damage and lost productivity is many multiples higher.3 Ransomware is the equivalent of catastrophic data loss, except

Last year at this time, we forecast a bumpy ride for infosec through 2017, as ransomware continued to wreak havoc and new threats emerged to target a burgeoning Internet of Things (IoT) landscape. ‘New IT’ concepts – from DevOps to various manifestations of the impact of cloud – seemed poised to both revolutionize and disrupt not only the implementation of security technology, but also the expertise required of security professionals as well. Our expectations for the coming year seem comparatively much more harmonious, as disruptive trends of prior years consolidate their gains. At center stage is the visibility wrought by advances in data science, which has given new life to threat detection and prevention – to the extent that we expect analytics to become a pervasive aspect of offerings throughout the security market in 2018. This visibility has unleashed the potential for automation to become more widely adopted, and not a moment too soon, given the scale and complexity of the thre

T raditional backup systems fail to meet the needs of modern organizations by focusing on backup, not recovery. They treat databases as generic files to be copied, rather than as transactional workloads with specific data integrity, consistency, performance, and availability requirements. Additionally, highly regulated industries, such as financial services, are subject to ever?increasing regulatory mandates that require stringent protection against data breaches, data loss, malware, ransomware, and other risks. These risks require fiduciary?class data recovery to eliminate data loss exposure and ensure data integrity and compliance. This book explains modern database protection and recovery challenges (Chapter 1), the important aspects of a database protection and recovery solution (Chapter 2), Oracle’s database protection and recovery solutions (Chapter 3), and key reasons to choose Oracle for your database protection and recovery needs (Chapter 4).

Enterprises like yours face the growing risk of cyberattacks, which increases your exposure to the risk of data loss. One of the most menacing forms of these is ransomware, where your data is encrypted and literally held ransom—until you pay cybercriminals to release it, or you recover your data from a point in time before your systems were attacked. Such attacks and data losses make headlines —damaging your organization’s reputation. And with new regulations concerning data protection coming into force (such as those introduced by the US Department of the Treasury and the European Union) failing to prepare for a quick recovery from a cyberattack could mean serious financial penalties.

The purpose of IT backup and recovery systems is to avoid data loss and recover quickly, thereby minimizing downtime costs. Traditional storage-centric data protection architectures such as Purpose Built Backup Appliances (PBBAs), and the conventional backup and restore processing supporting them, are prone to failure on recovery. This is because the processes, both automated and manual, are too numerous, too complex, and too difficult to test adequately. In turn this leads to unacceptable levels of failure for today’s mission critical applications, and a poor foundation for digital transformation initiatives. Governments are taking notice. Heightened regulatory compliance requirements have implications for data recovery processes and are an unwelcome but timely catalyst for companies to get their recovery houses in order. Onerous malware, such as ransomware and other cyber attacks increase the imperative for organizations to have highly granular recovery mechanisms in place that allow
