Social Media as the Top Malware Delivery Vehicle - How to Protect Your Network

A session at Interop New York

Wednesday 5th October, 2011

10:30am to 11:20am (EST)

Social media is now the top delivery vehicle for malware. And social media attacks are no longer limited to those who simply post a wealth of private information to these sites. Rather, they utilize advanced techniques, such as click jacking, spear phishing and password sniffing. By not only expanding the information we are placing on social websites, but also being too trusting of fellow users and eagerly sharing our opinion with that ever popular “like” button, we are making the job of social engineering easier for the bad guys. Let’s move from defense to offense and regain control of our accounts.

Speaker - Paul Henry, Security and Forensic Analyst, Lumension
