Attackers hone in on it because it's widely used and remains backward compatible with many versions of Microsoft Windows and Server environments. This webcast explores the specific techniques they use (DoublePulsar, for example) and how to defend against it via a layered detection approach that evaluates traffic using rules, statistical analysis, and AI to detect malicious activity.
