The industrialization of hacking has created a more effective and efficient way for hackers to profit from attacks on business critical applications and assets exposed to the Internet. This era of automated attacks that exploit application vulnerabilities and abuse application functionality has profoundly changed how we must protect these assets. A continuous threat intelligence feed, from a trusted globally crowd-sourced platform, has become vital to defend against such advanced Web-based attacks.
Incapsula’s research demonstrates our findings from last year, with a large portion of the attacks coming from botnets. During 2013, Incapsula witnessed an increase of 240% in attack volume, and it is important to mention that many of them used the Wordpress CMS platform as the bot attack platform.
With an increasing amount of business being conducted online, the internet has quickly become the frontline in an ongoing battle between companies and an unseen enemy. Industrial espionage, sabotage and cyber terrorism are becoming more frequent, resulting in lost revenue, stolen data, service interruptions and damaged reputations. This infographic illustrates the seven steps you must take to protect your organization from external threats targeting your high-value applications and data assets.
Web applications are a common and profitable target for hackers. In fact, nearly 55% of breached records come from attacks on web applications. The yearly costs of these kinds of attacks are enormous. Although network security solutions are essential for protecting networks, they do not provide the accuracy, the granularity or the breadth of protection required to stop all web attacks. This infographic illustrates how hackers bypass traditional defenses leaving high-value applications and data assets exposed to 60% of the OWASP Top 10 Threats.
During 2011, Imperva witnessed an assault by the hacktivist group ‘Anonymous’ that lasted 25 days. Our observations give insightful information on Anonymous, including a detailed analysis of hacking methods, as well as an examination of how social media provides a communications platform for recruitment and attack coordination. Hacktivism has grown dramatically in the past year and has become a priority for security organizations worldwide. Understanding Anonymous’ attack methods will help organizations prepare if they are ever a target.
Remote and local file inclusion (RFI/LFI) attacks are a favorite choice for hackers and many security professionals aren’t noticing. RFI and LFI attacks take advantage of vulnerable PHP Web application parameters by including a URL reference to remotely hosted malicious code, enabling remote execution.
