The Advanced Threats Evolution: Researchers Arm Race

The evolution in defensive software is really connected to the evolution of the modern threat landscape. Each new iteration of evolution focused on covering specific gaps in detection methods or data collection algorithms.

The main direction of advanced threats – like rootkits or bootkits – has been effective for persistent methods to get closer to the hardware and firmware levels. The more modern operating systems evolve in the direction of building more mitigations to increase the cost of exploitation and malware persistence, the harder advanced threat actors look for the next lowest level of persistence.

This talk will look over the prism of the evolution of advanced threats to the evolution (or lack of evolution) of the tools for forensics and reverse engineering.

During the talk, we will dig deeper into modern gaps to try to find the solution to improve visibility and prevent advanced threat actors from coming from the levels where security sensors not exist.
