The Adwind Remote Administration Tool is a backdoor Trojan written in Java language that targets various platforms that support Java files. Adwind does not exploit any vulnerabilities. In most cases, for an infection to succeed, the user must run the malware by double-clicking the .jar file that is usually distributed as an attachment, or opening an infected Microsoft Word document. The infection spreads if the Java Runtime Environment is installed on the user's computer. After the malicious .jar file is executed on the target system, the malware installs silently and connects to a remote server via a preconfigured port to receive commands from a remote attacker and perform other illegal operations.

Technical Tests are designed to cover specific services. Each security test has its own objectives and acceptable levels of risk. There is not an individual technique that provides a comprehensive picture of an organisation’s security when executed alone. A qualified third party can work with you to determine what combination of techniques you should use to evaluate your security posture and controls to begin to determine where you may be vulnerable.

VPNs were created for the networks and business environment of yesterday: Most employees worked in an office, devices were limited, enterprise architecture was far less complex, and attacks, in general, were considerably less sophisticated and frequent. What worked 20 years ago cannot be trusted today. Your VPN is cumbersome and time consuming from a management and performance perspective. But what you might not want to concede is that VPNs, by their very nature, pose a significant threat to enterprise security. Read this white paper to learn more about: The vulnerabilities and inefficiencies of traditional remote access -Why VPN elimination must happen now -The four advantages to eliminating your VPN -How a cloud framework for application access works -Next steps to implement a more secure access solution

BEC attacks are a growing threat to businesses because they prey on vulnerabilities that can’t be patched: people. That’s why employee training, financial controls, and especially technology are the keys to a strong defense and timely response. You need need a solution that does not solely depend on reputation and basic email filtering. With granular controls, advanced email solutions can identify and quarantine impostor emails before they reach an employee’s inbox.

Before Microsoft released Microsoft XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), most attackers would compromise a computer system by simply attacking it with known vulnerabilities or "bugs" that could allow the attacker to gain some level of control over the system. Newer attack methods were starting to be seen where the attacker would take advantage of vulnerabilities within the Internet browser itself.

The new generation of mobile devices, applications, and cloud services significantly improve agency efficiencies. Tasks that were once relegated to timeconsuming deskwork, are now performed in the field, and with improved accuracy. Because of this, more and more public safety agencies are adopting these new technologies. One purpose of the FBI’s CJIS Security Policy is to enable agencies to fully leverage mobile devices, but without sacrificing security. Mobile devices introduce a variety of new threat vectors and risks. Careful consideration of these risks is important to maintaining information security. Threats to mobile devices stem mainly from their size, portability, and available wireless interfaces. Examples of mobile device threats include: • Loss or theft of device • Unauthorized access to device • Mobile operating system vulnerabilities • Communication over untrusted networks • Malware or malicious Apps • Jailbreak or rooting activity • Data loss through user behaviors

In years past, device functionality was enough to sell most embedded products without much concern for cybersecurity. Of course there were exceptions, such as in critical infrastructure, aviation, and military, for which security was always of importance. But today’s environment has evolved on several fronts. First, organizations across nearly all markets are demanding Internet connectivity to monitor and control devices as well as to aggregate and analyze data. Second, the magnitude of security threats has exploded, driven by highly sophisticated hackers including organized criminal gangs seeking financial returns, creating a constantly evolving threat landscape. Third, the increasingly complex nature of connected systems makes them ever more challenging to protect. The more complex a system, the more potential vulnerabilities it may contain. And fourth, the data generated by connected devices represent an asset that is becoming increasingly valuable for organizations to derive insigh

Digital innovation has changed everything: the money is everywhere, so every business is a potential target for fraud. Banks and financial institutions used to be the primary targets of fraud. Why banks? To quote the notorious American bank robber Willie Sutton, “because that’s where the money is.” While banks remain firmly in the crosshairs of fraudsters, the avalanche of digital business innovation has changed everything. Since the money is everywhere, every business is a potential target for fraud. The same technology that helps us find airfare deals, sweet concert seats, or the best prices on the hottest Jordan shoes– that is, bots–can now be used by criminals. Fraudsters employ automated, faceless bots that scour business apps looking for any opportunity to profit. And since fraud targets business-process weaknesses and not just software vulnerabilities, you may not even know when it is happening.

Predictive analytics provide the foresight to understand cybersecurity risk exposure. Cybersecurity strategies often consist of “whack-a-mole” exercises focused on the perpetual detection and mitigation of vulnerabilities. As a result, organizations must re-think the ever-escalating costs associated with vulnerability management. After all, the daily flow of cybersecurity incidents and publicized data breaches, across all industries, calls into question the feasibility of achieving and maintaining a fully effective defense. The time is right to review the risk management and risk quantifcation methods applied in other disciplines to determine their applicability to cybersecurity. Security scoring is a hot topic, and rightfully so. When evaluating ways to integrate these scores into your cybersecurity strategy, be sure to look for an empirical approach to model development. The FICO Enterprise Security Score is the most accurate, predictive security score on the market.
