Unhacking Windows Revisited: Infection, Detection, & Why You Should Reinstall

Speaker:    Theodore Pham, Information Security Engineer

This class is rescheduled for April 19, 2010.

Abstract:

The malware industry continues to focus on increasing profits.  The recent cyber attacks against Google and 30+ other US companies highlights the increasing use of sophisticated, stealthy malware for credential and data theft.  Organized crime groups are replacing "easy to clean" web pop-up adware and spambots with professionally written trojans bought on the black market and designed to quietly raid financial data from inside your web browser.  Industrial spies are employing custom tailored trojans to steal intellectual property without ever alerting your antivirus.  All delivered to victim machines via targeted emails, hijacked social networking accounts, hacked legitimate websites, and fake news sites.  Plus the trend du jour of malicious ads on major legitimate websites such as MSN.com, Live.com, Digg.com, and Oprah.com redirecting to web attack servers.

This talk will demonstrate popular infection methods and malware stealth techniques, describe host based detection tools, and discuss why you should reinstall instead of attempting cleanup. 

Audience:
Open to faculty and staff only

Refreshments:
Pizza and beverages will be served.
