The Ways Hackers Are Taking To Win The Mobile Malware Battle

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

In the proverbial game of cat-and-mouse between endpoint security vendors and malware writers, malware attacks have recently grown more sophisticated. More enterprises are losing ground to hackers, who are able to outmaneuver static and runtime solutions by constantly changing their attack strategies. The team that uncovered iOS malicious profiles, WiFiGate, HTTP Request Hijacking, No iOS Zone and Invisible Profiles are taking it upon themselves to coach developers and organizations on how to regain control, and turn the tables on the hackers behind next-generation mobile malware.

In his presentation, Yair will discuss cutting-edge techniques used by malware writers to circumvent mobile security paradigms such as app-sandboxing and containers. Mr. Amit will then break down the current set of techniques (signatures, static analysis & dynamic analysis) used to identify malware on mobile devices, and identify the pros and cons of these approaches. He will also explain why attackers constantly succeed in fooling these technologies, and explore the problem of false positive/false negative tradeoffs in such solutions.

During a live, interactive demo, Yair will create a mobile malware on stage, meant to be undetected by static and runtime analysis technologies.
