Evolution of mass DbD-attacks malware and co-evolution of antimalware technologies


Exploitation of web browser environment vulnerabilities is one of the major ways of distrubution of mass malware.

I will talk about current trends in evolution of drive-by download related malware, juxtaposed with co-evolution in development of modern antimalware technologies to counteract DbD attacks. I'll also talk about specific exploit-kits existing in the black market as well as about the current state of antimalware industry.

Examples of actual malware codes, vulnerable features of browser environment and internals of antimalware systems will be presented and discussed.
