Thursday 6 October 11:00 - 12:00, Small talks
John Bambenek (Fidelis Cybersecurity)
Exploit kits are a critical piece of the malware delivery infrastructure, delivering banking trojans, click fraud engines and ransomware. This small talk will be designed to aid collaboration on a means to tackle these threats with a long-term goal of eventual prosecution of the actors and partners behind exploit kits and their associated malware campaigns. We will discuss the latest research into the backend infrastructure and surveillance techniques of the Nuclear, RIG and Angler exploit kits, to enable all participants to learn what others are doing to stay ahead of them.
