Client-Side Attacks and Defense

Client-Side Attacks and Defense Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Individuals wishing to attack a company’s network have found a new path of least resistance-the end-user. A client- side attack is one that uses the inexperience of the end-user to create a foothold in the user’s machine and therefore the network. Client-side attacks are everywhere and hidden in plain sight. Common hiding places are malicious Web sites and spam. A simple click of a link will allow the attacker to enter. This book presents a framework for defending your network against these attacks in an environment where it might seem impossible.

The most current attacks are discussed along with their delivery methods, such as browser exploitation, use of rich Internet applications, and file format vulnerabilities. The severity of these attacks is examined along with defenses against them, including antivirus and anti-spyware, intrusion detection systems, and end-user education.

  • Design and implement your own attack and test methodologies derived from the approach and framework presented by the author
  • Learn how to strengthen your network's host- and network-based defense against attackers' number one remote exploit-the client-side attack
  • Defend your network against attacks that target your company's most vulnerable asset-the end-user

Synopsis:

Learn how to defend your network against client-side attacks that target your company's most vulnerable asset-the end-user!
