Next week I will be presenting ESET’s 2014 Mid-Year Threat Review via webinar, looking at some of the more interesting pieces of malware and threats that have occurred over the first six months of the year. And what a year it has been, with some serious new developments as well as persistence of numerous older threats. The topics for discussion include:
- A quick peek inside ESET’s threat database updates
- Financial malware update: Banking trojans, Bitcoin miners/stealers
- The Heartbleed SSL vulnerability
- The Internet of (Infected) Things
- An update on Mac and iPhone threats
- Ongoing nation-state malware campaigns
- The Windigo campaign – “targeting mostly everything else except Windows“
- Windows XP’s EOL: The end of an era
The webinar is being hosted on the BrightTALK service. If you have not watched a webinar on BrightTALK before, then a one-time user registration is required, however the webinar is free of charge. Here are the details if you would like to attend:
