Newly released research on web security identified a significant evolution in the threat landscape: the use of malware networks, or malnets, to launch highly dynamic web-based attacks. These complex infrastructures, which outlast any one attack, drove a 240% increase in the number of malicious sites during the year and are expected to launch as many as two-thirds of all new attacks in 2012. The Blue Coat Security Labs team first discovered the existence of these malicious networks early in 2011, and this webinar will provide insight into the malnet ecosystem in depth, examining user behavior, malnet strategies and tactics, as well as highlighting the best defenses against these aggressive infrastructures.
Attendees to this webinar will:
Gain insight into malnet trends as outlined in the newly released Blue Coat 2012 Malnet Report
Receive a step-by-step analysis of how malnet attacks are launched an propagated
Education on some of the largest malnets affecting the global web ecosystem and their historical attack methods
Get advice on how to break the cycle of infection for malware networks and improve online security for your organization
