Alert Fatigue that helps no one as security teams need to triage 100s of vulnerabilities.:

  • The problem of vulnerability fatigue today
  • Difference between CVSS-specific vulnerability vs risk-based vulnerability
  • Evaluating vulnerabilities based on the business impact/risk
  • Automation to reduce alert fatigue and enhance security posture significantly

AcuRisQ, that helps you to quantify risk accurately:

A recent tweet from the security intelligence provider ThreatMon reported that a threat actor shared the EagleSpy Android Remote Access Trojan (RAT) 3.0 Ultimate on a forum.

Key Features of EagleSpy Android RAT 3.0

  • Bypassing Banking Applications: The malware can circumvent security measures of banking apps, potentially allowing hackers to access users’ financial information.
  • Skipping the Black Screen:¬†It can operate without triggering the black screen that signals another service is using an app, making its activities less detectable.
  • Bypassing Google Play Protection: EagleSpy can evade Google Play’s security checks, enabling the installation of malicious apps without detection.
  • Stealing Cookies and Login Credentials: The RAT can access and exfiltrate cookies and login details from all registered websites on the infected device, compromising users’ online accounts.
  • FUD (Fully Undetectable) Stub: It includes a feature to keep the APK (Android Package Kit) hidden from antivirus software, making it harder to detect and remove.
  • Stealing 2FA Google Authenticator Codes:¬†Perhaps most alarmingly, it claims to be able to steal codes from Google’s two-factor authentication (2FA) app, which is widely used as an additional security measure.

EagleSpy Android RAT 3.0’s capabilities pose a significant threat to users, potentially allowing unauthorized access to sensitive personal and financial information.

The ability to bypass 2FA, a cornerstone of modern online security practices, is particularly concerning. This could lead to unauthorized account access, financial theft, and identity fraud.

The emergence of EagleSpy Android RAT 3.0 underscores the evolving threat landscape facing Android users.

By staying informed about these threats and taking proactive security measures, users can significantly reduce their risk of falling victim to such malicious software.

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
