Overcoming VM Analysis Evasion
Every IT security professional knows the volume of malware is on the rise. Sophisticated tools previously available only to highly advanced or nation-state-level attackers have now been commoditised, automated, and made more accessible as well as less expensive for nearly all types of adversaries. This has allowed attackers to dramatically up their game by bringing evasive threats to the forefront that can completely bypass traditional security approaches.
Once the realm of only a few highly skilled attackers, it is now trivial for malware to evade detection in most commercially available malware analysis environments, commonly known as sandboxes. These virtual machine, or VM, evasion techniques are being baked into commodity threats, including ransomware, automated attack toolkits and other run-of-the-mill attacks.
Understanding evasive malware and effective strategies for preventing this emerging threat type can protect your organisation against financial, operational, legal, regulatory and compliance risks.
