Fileless malware – beyond a cursory glance

Alin and Lucian will talk about “living off the land” trend of malicious operations. Reverting to simple methods, making use of inherent “features” built into the operating systems that are being subverted as powerful infiltration solutions, one may run scripts and shellcode directly in the computer’s memory. As no suspicious files are stored on the disk, this operation remains undetected by most endpoint solutions for longer periods of time. Therefore, they will explore some of the detection techniques and tracking such operations, as well as highlight the challenges these investigations pose for classical security approaches.
Presentation’s Co-Presenter is Lucian Sararu, InfoSec Team Lead at SecureWorks.
