Dec. 8, 2017 | The 5 Most Dangerous New Attack Techniques, and What's Coming Next

Each year at the RSA Conference in San Francisco, SANS provides the authoritative summary of the most important new attack techniques in use today. Their 2017 list covered unnervingly accurate predictions of attack vectors used in some of the most dangerous new attacks seen in the wild, including weak random numbers associated in part with the recent ROCA vulnerability and the weaknesses of WPA2 group keys which were again highlighted in the KRACK vulnerability, the Crashoverride/Industroyer (modular malware that is made to disrupt power systems), new crypto ransomware variants regularly hitting millions of systems, and recent vulnerabilities exposing Internet of Things devices to attack. Learn more about their 2017 list, see new data about how those attacks have evolved, and get up to speed on how to defeat them.
