Slay your cybersecurity demons

October is Cybersecurity Awareness Month

It could be straight out of a horror movie – a frightening economic climate, budget cuts, understaffing, and constant headlines about massive data breaches. This Cybersecurity Month, we’re bringing you all the essential resources you need to banish your organization’s cybersecurity demons once and for all.

Top Vulnerability Exploitation Techniques

Here’s what you need to know about how attackers often gain access to IT environments to wreak terror. These are just plain evil, really. 

Remote Code Execution

The most common outcome of RCE attacks over the past few years is ransomware or cryptomining. RCE can easily be used to take over the system allowing for a monetizable event for the attacker.

Privilege Escalation

On its own, privilege escalation can allow an attacker to gain admin or root level privileges so they can potentially see additional infrastructure to attack, add or delete users, or modify permissions of files or other users. These tactics can help the attacker destroy or steal data, gain access to additional systems or files, or create backdoor users for future attacks.
