No File Left Behind
December 13, 2017
When you’re hiking the Appalachian Trail, it’s important to leave no trace. LNT has become a maxim of sorts among those who engage the outdoors, but over the last several months, the implications for cybersecurity have emerged. Or not. Maybe they haven’t emerged, and that’s the problem.
Malware up to this point has been deployed though a file. Whether the file enters your network through a phishing campaign, a thumb drive, or one of a million other vulnerabilities, the hope has always been that the antivirus software would snag the bad actor at some point along the way. That has changed. There is a new threat emerging on the scene, and that threat is not cloaked in a file of any sort.
In a recent piece on thenextweb.com, this new wave of cyber threat is described as being even more dangerous then ran somewhere, because the malware is not traceable and leaves nothing behind. Nevertheless, hackers are able to access very sensitive data.
