Threat actors have always played the game of emotions. Fear is the emotion they are using right now to lure users to click on an email or manipulate them to install an application. In the last four months, cyber criminals have used fear as their main weapon to compromise users by using pandemic-related themes to deliver malware. The dropped malwares are deadlier and stealthier and are hybrid in nature. There is a need for advanced investigation techniques, like memory forensics in the case of ransomware attacks that are ransacking health sectors and entropy-based detection for new-age trojan exfiltration. Join us to learn how we use traditional methods to identify these threats and also add a pinch of new-age forensics tricks to do some big reveals.
