Botnets and Takedowns – Are we winning?
ASIAL Security Conference
Large scale attacks instigated by botnets continue to be a worldwide scourge with little signs of abating. From ad frauds and the spread of ransomware to the harvesting of banking credentials, botnet variants, techniques and tactics have continued to evolve following each significant takedown over the years. What does a large-scale attack look like and who are the threat actors? How have the attacker's techniques evolved over the years and have our authorities, private organisations and legislations been effective in helping us win the fight? This talk will provide a perspective from a global antivirus company to help answer these questions.
