CryptoLocker: What's Old is New Again (in cyber years)


It’s been a few years since we have seen CryptoLocker on a regular basis, but now it seems to be making its rounds again via a new spam campaign. The new CryptoLocker variant has been around for many years, and has evolved over that time.

CryptoLocker used to be very popular back when the Zeus botnet was making its rounds. The way it worked was once a computer was infected with the Zeus malware, it would be used to push the CryptoLocker ransomware onto the machine.

Take your SMB cyber program from “I hope,” to “I know”

As a small business or mid-sized organization, cybersecurity can mean very different things. Most small businesses have less resources available to deal with threats.

EDR: An Essential Component of the SOC

As a leading platform provider to enterprise and Federal customers in the endpoint detection and response (EDR) market, we’ve been closely watching the changing nature of how Security Operations Centers (SOC’s) are structured for optimal aggregation and correlation. We are seeing several trends emerge as SOC managers demand a more robust, yet less cumbersome set of integrations into SIEM platforms as their centralized cybersecurity lens into threat management.

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)—A Look at the Evolving Industry

Over the past 18 months we’ve watched the Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) market evolve and take shape as organizations both small and large and across industry are recognizing the need to protect the endpoint.  A clear focus for technology market-wide, has been on trying to solve customer challenges by detecting threats faster and with more efficacy, integrating endpoint intelligence into other platforms, improving SOC workflow and preventing commodity malware in favor of focusing more on advanced threats.

Do We Face Variable Threat Levels Based on Geographic Location?

In recent years, the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region has been increasingly scrutinized for the growth of cybercrime incidents and the perceived lack of cybersecurity knowledge and preventative measures in the region.  The good news is that we’re now seeing a real uptick in the region’s cybersecurity efforts, across the board.

Don’t “Piece” Together your Cybersecurity Solution

These days it appears the concept of a single point solution that protects your endpoints and your network is a dead dream. AV software is being replaced by more complex detection software, while whitelists and IOCs only do a fraction of the work. Keeping the bad stuff out at the perimeter has been replaced by the concept of quickly detecting and responding.

A Case for Security Prioritization in Retail


I was shoppping with my daughter the other night for indoor soccer socks at a major sporting goods retailer here in Massachusetts. As we rolled up to the register with bright pink and purple options, I noticed something at checkout - the retailer was not ready for chip and pin credit cards. 

As I swiped my chip and pin credit card, I got to thinking...there are cyber risks everywhere, during every transaction, before and after every transaction, at any store, any company, coffee shop, airplane, airport, organization you visit...but back to the example here.

Detecting and Remediating Against File Distribution Attacks

Enterprise teams have varying means to some degree, of how they “see” attacks. There is often incongruence between what events they can detect, what their intelligence means, and the potential impact of an attack. 

At CounterTack, we are developing new technologies to help customers better detect and understand their threat tolerance. We are innovating methods to help customers improve security response by contextualizing threat impact into actionable intelligence.

The Next Generation Endpoint Is Truly Here

The RSA Conference was an interesting experience, particularly for those in the endpoint security market, or those attempting to break into this emerging market. It seems everyone at this point has some type of endpoint play, regardless of their technology heritage, or prior security focus.

It was at the America’s Growth Capital conference, a simultaneous gathering of investors and security types, that perhaps one of the more interesting panels took place, albeit, the final panel session of the day. With 1 billion endpoints in need of help, its clear this is the hottest market across the broadening security industry.
