ABSTRACT
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE OS IS USED AS A WEAPON – GAINING VISIBILITY OVER FILE-LESS ATTACKS & LOLBINS
From organised crimes to state-sponsored threat actors, file-less attacks have been gaining momentum and they have been stressing the defence capabilities of both governments and enterprises at large. With these mounting challenges, a new threat has also started to emerge: dubbed LOLBins. The attack takes advantage of normal OS components, abusing them to download or execute external content while bypassing whitelisting solutions and anti-virus software. What are the best practices to gain visibility over these new families of attacks and how to detect them early? We will analyse several real-life scenarios to gain a deeper understanding of this emerging family of threats and to understand how to enact an appropriate threat hunting and response process.

KEY TAKEAWAYS
1) Recognising a fileless attack
2) Understanding how fileless attacks work and their application
3) Gaining visibility on fileless attack
4) Taking steps to overcome/contain/remediate fileless attacks
