The evolution of malware: arms race in XXI century


The news about spectacular successes of cybercriminals in attacking the best-known, worldwide institutions have been reaching us for several years. Due to state of the art weapons and techniques used nowadays by the cybercriminals, appropriate measures must be taken by security experts.

Today, classic approach to applications and system security offers merely an illusory sense of security. To provide an adequate level of protection, we need to be one step forward of those who had “joined the dark side”. The lecture covers modern techniques used by malware and corresponding methodologies.

Examples of security breach will be discussed, as well as case studies to show what exactly went wrong. Conclusions will be supported by recommendations regarding security and suitable technologies.
