Israel Barak will provide insights into how compromised assets as part of broad, untargeted “commodity” malware campaigns are re-classified based on the organizational network they're part of to determine their value in the market.

Cybereason, developers of the world’s only military-grade, real-time detection and response platform, today announced that its CISO Israel Barak will be giving two presentations at Black Hat Europe, taking place Thursday, November 3 and Friday, November 4 at the Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, London, UK. Attendees can visit Cybereason at Black Hat Europe by visiting booth #403.

Barak’s session titled ‘Watching Commodity Malware Get Sold to a Targeted Actor,’ will be presented Thursday, November 3, 1:35-2:00 p.m. in the Business Hall, Theater B and on Friday, November 4 in the Business Hall, Theater A, 2:15-2:40 p.m.

Cybereason also announced its international expansion with the opening of its EMEA office.

About Barak’s Presentation:
Barak will discuss how detected breaches are often classified as either “targeted” or “untargeted.” This quick classification of a breach as “untargeted” and the following de-prioritization for remediation, often misses a re-classification and upgrade process several attack groups have been conducting.

As part of this process, Barak will provide insights into how compromised assets as part of broad, untargeted “commodity” malware campaigns are re-classified based on the organizational network they're part of to determine their value in the market. The higher value ones are upgraded and taken out of the “commodity” campaign to prepare them for a sale, for buyers planning a targeted attack. This session will also cover the analysis of endpoint and network data captured during these re-classification operations, demonstrating the techniques used by attack groups as they migrate compromised endpoints from the “commodity” threat platform to the valuable-target's platform.
