This year is coming to an end. The media headlines were constantly reporting massive attacks and breaches. We expect nothing less in 2018.
In March 2017, Microsoft (known for fixing vulnerabilities in their software products once a month on “Patch Tuesday”) recently addressed post-infection detection, investigation, and response with their Windows Defender Advanced Threat Protection [ATP]). Microsoft is a company that is continuing to evolve in product/services, and is now
In late 2016, enSilo researchers shared AtomBombing with the security world. More of a “proof of concept” than an actual exploit, AtomBombing took advantage of Microsoft Windows built-in atom tables that would allow specific API calls to inject code into the read-write memory space of a targeted process.
(NOTE: enSilo endpoint protection
TL;DR: We show AtomBombing modifications to enable us to inject code into CFG-protected processes.
Our research team has uncovered new way to leverage mechanisms of the underlying Windows operating system in order to inject malicious code. (This research is one way enSilo ensures complete endpoint protection.) Threat actors can use this technique, which exists by design of the operating system, to bypass current security solutions that
TL;DR Here’s a new code injection technique, dubbed AtomBombing, which exploits Windows atom tables and Async Procedure Calls (APC). Currently, this technique goes undetected by common security solutions that focus on preventing infiltration.
