Juniper - Rise of Cryptocurrency Malware Vortragssprache Englisch

 A new exploit opportunity has fallen into the laps of Cybercriminals. They have now set their sights on the virtual (and booming) world of cryptocurrency. Since the start of 2017, the bitcoins price has tripled, and Ethereum is up more than 5,000 percent. Given the bubble-like rise in valuations, cryptocurrencies represent a new and highly valuable opportunity by cybercriminals to increase their malware riches.

 What you’ll learn during this presentation:

  • How the malware landscape has evolved to include the development of exploits to take advantage of Bitcoin, blockchain, and cryptocurrency technology
  •  A dive into the main technological, geopolitical, legal, and economic aspects of cryptocurrency malware and predictions about the future
  • Details about ransomware families such as Petya, WannaCry, Locky, and Cryptolocker as well as coin mining Trojans
  •  A review of the lessons learned from these exploits and how to best protect against them
