What’s next: Advanced Evasion Techniques

Advanced evasion techniques, or AETs, are delivery mechanisms used to disguise advanced persistent threats (APTs) and permit them to slip through network security undetected.

AETs work by splitting up malicious payloads into smaller pieces, disguising them, and delivering them simultaneously across multiple and rarely used protocols. Once inside, AETs reassemble to unleash malware and continue an APT attack.

McAfee released a What’s Next: Industry Experts Speak Out on Advanced Evasion Techniques, featuring Mirko Zorz, Editor in Chief of Help Net Security.
