RED Systems Management can quickly block access to the files NotPetya intends to use to infect you. With patented Access Control List (ACL) management technology, RED Systems Management can lockout NotPetya from executing on client systems.
The process to track the criminals involved in the WannaCry attack starts with trying to get an attribution (who did it or profited by it down to specific individuals - including where they are located) on one or more of three elements of the attack.
The survey queried respondents about changing default passwords on IoT devices. More than half admitted they do not have a process to change these passwords.
“This is cyber Pearl Harbor,” said Philip Lieberman, President and CEO of Lieberman Software. “This is the first time we’ve ever seen a general attack that affects everybody.”
A distinction has to be made when it comes to how far perimeter security products go toward overall IT security. All they really do is keep out noise. In other words, perimeter security only prevents the low-skilled attacks looking for easy targets.
The credentials that control access to privileged accounts are ultimately the main obstacle standing between hackers and your organization’s private data. All too often, however, these credentials are not secured, monitored and audited.
The problem is, cyber defense technologies that traditionally protected us from attack are often no longer able to do so. Firewalls, anti-malware tools and the like cannot block zero day attacks that haven’t previously been identified. Zero days can slip past conventional perimeter security tools undetected, and then wreak havoc inside the network.
The true story is that the lack of automated patching of embedded systems, and generally lousy IT security services for public IoT systems is an epidemic.
What’s interesting about the Jeep Cherokee incident, I think, is that it demonstrates that car hacking is more than hype. As vehicles increasingly become computers on wheels, auto manufacturers will concurrently need to address cyber security issues.
Lesser known than its cousin Pass-the-Hash, this newer attack, dubbed Pass-the-Ticket, is just as dangerous. Using toolkits such as Mimikatz and Windows Credentials Editor (WCE), hackers can develop Pass-the-Ticket attacks that expand throughout networks by copying tickets from compromised end-user machines, or from a delegated authorization server.
