Cyberkriminelle missbrauchen Zustelldienste in Zeiten von Corona

kasperskyDie Corona-Krise wird von Cyberkriminellen nach wie vor fleißig ausgenutzt: Nun haben unsere Experten eine Reihe von Spam- und Phishing-Angriffen entdeckt, die es explizit auf Nutzer abgesehen haben, die eine Paketzustellung erwarten. Dabei geben sich die Betrüger in den E-Mails häufig als Mitarbeiter eines Zustelldienstes aus und behaupten, ein Paket sei angekommen, für dessen Erhalt das potenzielle Opfer allerdings die Informationen in einer angehängten Datei lesen oder bestätigen müsse.

Move Fast and Don’t Break Things (Part 1): Accurate API Monitoring at High Performance

VMRay Logo 400x120In designing systems, engineers often must navigate between two extremes. Resources are finite and compromises must be made between making something operate slowly and thoroughly or fast and recklessly. But what if a system could be both fast and accurate? Because of VMRay’s entirely hypervisor-based technology, it has the ability to be both. While traditional sandboxing technology needs to choose one or the other, VMRay has the unique ability to monitor all the API calls made by a code sample (unlike API hooking sandboxes), and do it at high performance (unlike emulators).
