Death by 1,000 File types

In today’s sophisticated threat landscape, security professionals face a daunting challenge: the endless array of file types attackers exploit to bypass robust security measures. This webinar delves deep into the core issues surrounding file-based attacks, casting a spotlight not just on our solution-centric approach but the underlying problems that necessitated their creation.

Attackers increasingly leverage the vast diversity and intricacies of available file types, rendering traditional security controls ineffective. It’s a problem of breadth and complexity, where certain control measures inevitably fall short. Among the issues discussed, we explore:

  • The disturbing rise of adversary success, rooted in their strategic deployment of intricate file format attacks including exploiting file types already present in victim environments – a tactic known as Living Off the Land (LOL) – to heighten evasion and attack efficacy.
  • The inadequacy of modern defensive controls in this domain, creating vulnerabilities that adversaries eagerly exploit.
  • The pitfalls of singular-focused analysis, such as exclusive attention to pdf or office documents.
  • The intricate process of handling multiple file types, parsing them, identifying malicious components, and navigating the layered logic of depth and recursion to ensure optimal security.

Join us as we dissect these challenges, shedding light on the covert world of file-based threats and arming you with the knowledge to fortify your defenses.
