3 Introduction As the number and severity of cyber-crimes continues to grow, it s important to understand the steps cyber-criminals take to attack your network, the types of malware they use, and the tools you need to stop them. The basic steps of a cyber attack include reconnaissance (finding vulnerabilities); intrusion (actual penetration of the network); malware insertion (secretly leaving code behind); and clean-up (covering tracks). Malware comes in various forms, some more nefarious than others, ranging from annoying sales pitches to potentially business-devastating assaults. Dell SonicWALL offers comprehensive solutions to counter every stage of cyber attacks and eliminate every type of malware from disrupting your business network. You need to understand the enemy before you can defeat them Dell SonicWALL. All rights reserved..

4 Attack step 1: Reconnaissance and enumeration The goal of reconnaissance is to learn about vulnerabilities in the targeted network and systems, including credentials, software versions, and misconfigured settings. One method for gathering this information is through social engineering cons, which fool end users into surrendering data. This is often perpetrated through phishing (fraudulent ), pharming (fraudulent web sites) and driveby pharming (redirected DNS settings on hijacked wireless access points). Enumeration, the second step in any type of cyberattack, surreptitiously expands the knowledge and data gained during reconnaissance. Service scanning and war dialing are popular during the enumeration phase. Service scanning identifies network systems and correlates known bugs and software weaknesses. War dialing involves using an automated system to call each of the telephone numbers owned by a company in hopes of finding a modem which may provide direct access to internal company resources. Cyber-criminals will do anything to find and exploit your weaknesses Dell SonicWALL. All rights reserved..

5 Attack step 2: Intrusion and advanced attacks Once attackers have identified and correlated known vulnerabilities, they can exploit them to penetrate the network. Even more dangerous are sophisticated zero-day attacks, which exploit software weaknesses that, while not publically disclosed, may have been distributed on the black market among attackers ranging from petty criminals to transnational organized criminal gangs. Another advanced form of malicious intrusion is the denial-of-service (DoS) attack, which aims to render networks inoperable by bombarding them with external communications requests. Common DoS attacks include smurf attacks, ping flood attacks, ping-of-death attacks and SYN flood attacks. Vulnerabilities A stealthy intruder can access every facet of your network systems.

6 Attack step 3: Malware insertion After infiltrating a network, the next step in an attack is to secretly insert malware in order to maintain ongoing remote control over systems, and ultimately, execute code within the network to achieve a particular goal. Inserted malware can be a nuisance (e.g., marketing driven); controlling (to provide back door access or remote control), or destructive (to cause intentional harm or to cover the tracks of the attacker). Hidden malware gives your attacker the keys to your network Dell SonicWALL. All rights reserved..

7 Malware type 1: Nuisance malware Some types of malware are not overly malicious in nature, but can cause annoyance and affect system performance and productivity. Spyware, used to collect and relay sensitive information back to its distributor, also can be a major nuisance, typically infecting web browsers rendering them nearly inoperable. Spyware is often used for deceitful marketing purposes, such as monitoring user activity without their knowledge. Adware, as the name implies, is typically used to spread advertisements, providing some type of financial benefit to the attacker. After becoming infected by adware, the victim becomes bombarded by pop-ups, toolbars and other types of advertisements when attempting to use the infected computer. Nuisance adware can render a system inoperable if not removed properly.

8 Malware type 2: Controlling malware Other malware hides in wait to issue controls or execute attacks. Trojans executable code embedded into another (typically commonly-used) application are often designed to be unknowingly launched by a trusted user. Remote-access Trojans (RATs) create back doors for remote control. Rootkits are even more insidious. They hide in lowlevel, sub-os system resources to provide attackers with unrestricted network access, and can even go undetected by conventional anti-virus solutions. Trojans and rootkits are often used in creating zombie systems, from which criminals can launch outbound botnet attacks. Hidden malware gives your attacker the keys to your network Dell SonicWALL. All rights reserved..

9 Malware type 3: Destructive malware Typically designed to inflict damage, computer viruses can purge an entire hard disk, rendering data useless in a matter of moments. Commonly spread through shared files, web downloads or attachments, viruses must be executed on the target system before they actually pose a threat. Once activated, viruses often replicate themselves throughout the infected system. Seek-and-destroy viruses target specific files types or portions of the hard disk. Unlike viruses, worms can spread themselves throughout networks without user activation. Once infected by a worm, the compromised system will begin scanning the local network in an attempt locate additional target systems. After locating a target, the worm will exploit vulnerabilities in its operating system, injecting it with malicious code. While sometimes viewed as a nuisance, worms can also spread other malware and inflict damage. Viruses and worms can devastate your network and your business Dell SonicWALL. All rights reserved..

10 Attack step 4: Clean-up The final stage of the attack cycle is to rid the infected system of forensic evidence. A proactive element to this step is for attackers to be as inconspicuous as possible in the earlier steps. For example, an attacker may commandeer the credentials of a trusted network user that would not raise alarms by accessing the targeted systems, or use commonplace applications, such as instant messaging, to insert malicious files or extract information. A primary goal of this step is to erase any traces of the attack from the system. This can be done by the manual or automated deletion of command line or event logs, deactivation of alarms, and the upgrade or patching of outdated software after the attack has been accomplished. Additionally, hackers and cyber thieves often unleash viruses and worms to destroy potentially incriminating evidence. A skilled criminal can compromise your network without you ever knowing Dell SonicWALL. All rights reserved..
