In the first half of 2017 alone, organizations have had to cope with a slew of new tactics: a surge in evasive, fileless attacks, record breaking attack propagation speeds and the rise of 64-bit attacks. The latest version of Morphisec Endpoint Threat Prevention gives security teams the answer to tackle these trends plus unknown threats to come.

Hospitality Industry Needs Shelter From Cyber Threats

Posted by Ursula Ron on Jun 27, 2017 9:25:54 AM

Two weeks ago, Morphisec Lab, led by VP R&D Michael Gorelik, warned of a new attack by the FIN7 cybercrime group against restaurants across the US. Earlier this year, the financially motivated FIN7 group, one of the leading threat actor groups operating today, targeted restaurant chains Chipotle, Baja Fresh and Ruby Tuesday, among others. And you certainly remember the massive 2016 attack on the Wendy’s fast food chain, which resulted in over 1000 Wendy’s locations hit by a credit card breach. Numbers were also big in the Arby’s data breach discovered in January 2017: according to the credit union service PSCU, 350,000 credit and debit card accounts might have been impacted by the hack on Arby’s point-of-sale (PoS) systems.

Artificial Intelligence for Security: Real Limitations

Posted by Mordechai Guri, Ph.D. on Jun 14, 2017 11:24:29 AM

 

Fueled by access to ever-increasing computational power, the past few decades have seen an explosion in Artificial Intelligence (AI) capabilities and applications. Today, AI is used in everything from image and speech recognition, to recommendation systems, to biomedical informatics to self-driving cars. Recently, various cyber security vendors are adapting "AI Technologies" in their products in order to improve the detection rate of malware and attacks. In particular, AI is expected to slowly replace the old-style signature-based detection of malware. Signature-based detection has proved to be ineffective against today's "one-million-new-samples-per-day" malware variants. But what does it really mean to use AI in detection of attacks and malware; can it really live up to its promises?

FIN7 Takes Another Bite at the Restaurant Industry

Posted by Michael Gorelik on Jun 9, 2017 6:40:33 PM

INTRODUCTION

On June 7, 2017, Morphisec Lab identified a new, highly sophisticated fileless attack targeting restaurants across the US. The ongoing campaign allows hackers to seize system control and install a backdoor to steal financial information at will. It incorporates some never before seen evasive techniques that allow it to bypass most security solutions – signature and behavior based.

Building Security Resiliency Into Critical Infrastructure

Posted by Mordechai Guri, Ph.D. on Apr 18, 2017 8:24:37 AM

 

This article previously appeared on Information Management. Mordechai Guri is Chief Science Officer at Morphisec.

National Cybersecurity Awareness Month closed by focusing on scenarios straight out of action movies and nightmares – attacks on our critical infrastructure. These days, however, the threat is more likely to come from an innocent seeming email than bomb-toting terrorists à la Die Hard.

Utilities, hospitals, transportation systems, and all the other systems our communities and countries depend on are increasingly digitally controlled and connected. This brings tremendous productivity and reliability gains: better alignment of supply and demand, predictive maintenance planning, predictive outage response, instantaneous sharing of vital data and more. In some cases, like health care, it can make the difference between life and death.

Malware Is a Symptom – Don’t Treat Symptoms

Posted by Arthur Braunstein on Mar 30, 2017 3:00:29 AM

Imagine this. You are in charge of public health and must deal with an unrelenting epidemic. You have two options for protecting the population.

The first option is to monitor each person for symptoms of infection. You buy analytical technology and infrastructure, hire staff and build hospitals. You send forth specialists to monitor everyone. When they notice symptoms, more tests are performed. The symptoms are
subtle (fatigue, headache, stiffness), and healthy and sick people look a lot alike, so to be on the safe side you test far more people than are truly ill. Once you suspect infection, you quarantine the person and start a course of treatment. Sometimes the people are cured. Sometimes they are not. You can’t guarantee that you will find everyone who is infected. Or that everyone you treat is ill. The monitoring and mandatory quarantine intrude on civil liberties, disrupt lives and interfere with the economy. To compound matters, the disease mutates, so you have to continually design new screening tests and retrain the specialists.

Hedge Funds Need to Hedge Against Hackers

Posted by Omri Dotan on Feb 1, 2017 9:55:46 AM

Hedge funds are coming under increasingly heavy fire from attackers and regulators alike. A 2015 report issued by the SEC that examined more than 100 financial companies found that 88 per cent of broker-dealers and 74 per cent of investment advisers have experienced a cyberattack directly or through one or more of their vendors.
