Morphisec, the world's leading provider of prevention-first endpoint security software, today announced the launch of a risk-based vulnerability prioritization capability for exposure management.
Morphisec researchers have spotted a recent increase in attacks involving a sophisticated new variant of Jupyter, an information stealer that has been targeting users of Chrome, Edge, and Firefox browsers since at least 2020.
The attacks are another manifestation of the concerning rise in information stealers for harvesting data and enabling persistent access to enterprise networks.
In the 2023 Gartner Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security, automated moving target defense (AMTD) has emerged, and Morphisec is known as a sample supplier in the AMTD field.
Morphisec, the world's leading provider of prevention-first cybersecurity software, today announced its recognition as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security, 2023.
"It has undergone major overhauls: from being rewritten entirely in Python, which resulted in lower detection rates by traditional defense systems, to a comprehensive redesign and an enhanced communication protocol," Morphisec said in a new detailed technical write-up shared with The Hacker News.
Morphisec this morning published a description of a new variant of the Chae$ malware, "Chae$ 4," which is being used against the financial services and software supply chain sectors.
The Chaes malware has returned as a new, more advanced variant that includes a custom implementation of the Google DevTools protocol for direct access to the victim's browser functions, allowing it to steal data using WebSockets.
Worried about generative AI? CISA Director Jennifer Easterly is. Back in April, she called cybersecurity risk from generative AI “… the biggest issue that we’re going to deal with this century.”
Ransomware has become prolific, with a new ransomware attack striking on average every 10 seconds. That figure may shrink to just two seconds by 2031. Today’s threat actors are powerful and sophisticated enough to successfully hold national governments ransom. But this doesn’t mean that state-level entities are their primary targets.
