“We can classify evasion techniques into three broad categories:
Anti-security techniques: Used to avoid detection by antimalware
engines, firewalls, application containment, or other tools that
protect the environment.
Anti-sandbox techniques: Used to detect automatic analysis and
avoid engines that report on the behavior of malware. Detecting
registry keys, files, or processes related to virtual environments lets
malware know if it is running in a sandbox.
Anti-analyst techniques: Used to detect and fool malware
analysts, for example, by spotting monitoring tools such as Process
Explorer or Wireshark, as well as some process-monitoring tricks,
packers, or obfuscation to avoid reverse engineering.In the world of cybersecurity evasion, certain terms are popular. Here are
“How can we characterise Cybersecurity? How do data breaches, hacks, system exploits and computer intrusions happen - and why? What occurs when Cybersecurity really works effectively, and can we systemise it? Or will the clever hacker always break into any networked device, sweeping all defences aside? On a quest for insightful answers in this ground-breaking book, Dr Alan Radley proceeds to completely deconstruct, rationally analyse, meticulously rebuild and then sanely reassess the entire field of Cybersecurity. A rigorous scientific methodology is applied to networked system design, leading to a comprehensive new model - and accurate taxonomic tree - of...
