HSBC Bank is warning some of its U.S. customers that their personal data was compromised in a breach, although it says it's detected no signs of fraud following the "unauthorized entry." Security experts say the heist has all the hallmarks of a credential-stuffing attack campaign.
At a time when security professionals are faced not only with a barrage of threats, but with a myriad of threat intelligence data sources, it can be challenging to know when to stop an investigation. Join DomainTools Senior Security Engineer Tarik Saleh to learn essential methodologies from a blue team perspective.
Kenneth Schuchman, the alleged author of a supercharged variant of Mirai malware called Satori, has been rearrested for violating his bail conditions. In what may be a coincidence, security researchers say a Satori botnet went dormant following Schuchman's arrest, only to be reawakened later.
One of the co-authors of the devastating Mirai botnet malware has been sentenced to home incarceration and community service, and ordered to pay $8.6 million in restitution, for his role in a series of damaging distributed denial-of-service attacks that disrupted operations at Rutgers University.
Two years after Mirai botnets first appeared, security researchers say telnet-targeting botnets are attempting to compromise internet of things devices by pummeling them with 1,065 different username/password combinations. Some of these attacks are designed to install Linux DDoS malware.
Although DoS attacks are not a recent phenomenon, the methods and resources available to conduct and mask such attacks have dramatically evolved to include distributed (DDoS) and distributed reflector (DRDoS) attacks that cannot be addressed by traditional on-premise solutions.

Not only are we now seeing the most powerful DDoS attacks ever recorded, but they also are leveraging the ever-growing army of IoT devices. Over the last several years, there has been a very clear long-term trend in DDoS attacks. They are increasing in size, frequency and complexity - that's a macro trend.
Not only are we now seeing the most powerful DDoS attacks ever recorded, but they also are leveraging the ever-growing army of IoT devices. Gary Sockrider of NETSCOUT Arbor offers advice for detection and defense.
The cyberthreat landscape is rapidly changing. As attacks continue to increase in volume and sophistication, agency defenses also must evolve.
In order to do so, many agencies are moving toward a more holistic, analytics-driven approach to security. By gaining an end-to-end view of what's happening inside an agency...
Spain's central bank says its website was intermittently offline as it struggled to repel a distributed denial-of-service attack. The temporary disruption is a reminder "stresser/booter" DDoS-on-demand services remain inexpensive, easy to procure and often effective.
In today's digital marketplace, your applications are your business. They fuel innovation and are the driving force for staying
competitive in an always-on, always-connected world. Apps are the way you build relationships with your customers, empower
your employees, facilitate growth, and so much more.
The threat landscape is dramatically different than it was just 5 years ago. A traditional web application firewall (WAF) was once a very effective solution for mitigating application layer attacks, but now has trouble keeping up with the advanced capabilities and agility of attackers. Signatures often lag behind new...
With the increasing complexity of DDoS attack vectors, comes the evolving need to continually revaluate your DDoS protection strategy. The situation is only further complicated by new attack motives and the exponential abundance of vulnerable IoT devices.
