Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

".the book works its way through how attacks are planned and executed, following by a description of protective measures and concluding with a bit of myth-busting in order to leave readers with a clear and accurate picture of what the threat really means for them.you get a very sharp sense of how and why these attacks are possible."--Network Security, June 2014

"The most complete text in targeted cyber attacks to date. Dr. Sood and Dr. Enbody are able to present the topic in an easy to read format that introduces the reader into the basics of targeted cyber attacks, how the attackers gather information about their target, what strategies are used to compromise a system, and how information is being exfiltrated out from the target systems. The book then concludes on how to build multi-layer defenses to protect against cyber attacks. In other words, the book describes the problem and presents a solution. If you are new to targeted attacks or a seasoned professional who wants to sharpen his or her skills, then this book is for you."

-Christopher Elisan, Principal Malware Scientist, RSA -The Division of EMC

 

"As targeted attacks become ever more prevalent, sophisticated and harmful, it's important that we understand them clearly, learn to detect them and know how to mitigate their effects. With this book, Aditya Sood and Richard Enbody have provided us with the tools to do this. Their clear, technically detailed analysis helps cut through the fear, uncertainty, doubt and hype surrounding this subject, to help us understand what's really going on and what to do about it."

-Steve Mansfield-Devine, Editor, Network Security, Computer Fraud & Security

"Dr. Aditya K Sood and Dr. Richard J Enbody have done an excellent job of taking the very complex subject of targeted attacks and breaking it down systematically so we can understand the attack techniques, tactics and procedures and build defensive mitigation strategies around them. "Targeted Cyber Attacks" provides insights into common indicators of compromise, so your security teams can react as fast as possible and distinguish anomalous behavior from everyday normal user behavior."

-Stephan Chenette, CTO at AttackIQ, Inc.

"Sood and Enbody have taken a systematic, step by step approach to break down a pretty complex topic into bite-sized chunks that are easily digestible. They cover everything from the basics and 'need to know' of targeted attacks to the more advanced insights into the world of exploit packs, attack techniques and more."

-Dhillon Andrew Kannabhiran, Founder/Chief Executive Officer, Hack In The Box

"Targeted Cyber Attacks is by far the perfect manual to dive into the dark borders of cybercrime. The book thoroughly describes the model and the mechanisms used by criminals to achieve the cyber attack to exfiltrate information or steal money. From a pen-tester's perspective, the ethical hackers will certainly find the fundamental factors to prepare a better approach to conduct high level penetration testing. Aditya and Richard deliver the secrets used by cyber-criminals to get inside the most secured companies. I learned a lot from this stunning publication authored by a BlackHat Arsenal Jedi."

-Nabil Ouchn, Founder of ToolsWatch.org and Organizer of BlackHat Arsenal

"I have always been a fan of the articles that have been published by Dr. Sood and Dr. Enbody in the past - and this book reflects that same quality of work we have come to enjoy here at CrossTalk. I found the information to be a very extensive, compelling read for anyone interested in modern cyber-attack methodologies. The information flows from chapter-to-chapter in a very logical sequence and is easily understandable by even those with limited knowledge in the cyber-security realm. I found the work to be extremely interesting and the writing style is active and enjoyable at all points. The work presented should be read by not only those in the software realm, but also the casual user who has an interest in privacy and security for themselves."

-Justin Hill, Executive Publisher of CrossTalk, the Journal of Defense Software Engineering

"Targeted attacks are one of the most virulent, dangerous cyber threats of our time. Every company, large and small, should be factoring these in as a major risk. This book brings readers up to speed, and helps them get in front of the threat, so that they can take action before they are targeted."

-Danny Bradbury, Cyber Security Journalist and Editor

Présentation de l'éditeur

Cyber-crime increasingly impacts both the online and offline world, and targeted attacks play a significant role in disrupting services in both. Targeted attacks are those that are aimed at a particular individual, group, or type of site or service. Unlike worms and viruses that usually attack indiscriminately, targeted attacks involve intelligence-gathering and planning to a degree that drastically changes its profile.

Individuals, corporations, and even governments are facing new threats from targeted attacks. Targeted Cyber Attacks examines real-world examples of directed attacks and provides insight into what techniques and resources are used to stage these attacks so that you can counter them more effectively.



  • A well-structured introduction into the world of targeted cyber-attacks
  • Includes analysis of real-world attacks
  • Written by cyber-security researchers and experts

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good intro to the topic 22 septembre 2014
Par Ben Rothke - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Targeted cyber attacks are for the most part the same as an APT (advanced persistent threat). It was last year's report on APT1 from Mandiant that brought this important information security topic to the forefront.

In Targeted Cyber Attacks: Multi-staged Attacks Driven by Exploits and Malware, authors Aditya Sood and Richard Enbody write that there are a few different definitions of what a targeted cyber attack is. They use the standard definition that it's a class of dedicated attacks that aim at a specific user, company or organization, with the intent to gain access to critical data in a stealthy manner. They also note that APT's are simply variants of targeted cyber attacks.

At 158 pages, the book provides a good introduction to the topic with significant amounts of background information. It provides a mid- to high-level overview of the topic.

For those looking for a good introduction to the topic, which can then lead them to a more comprehensive reference, Targeted Cyber Attacks: Multi-staged Attacks Driven by Exploits and Malware is a good place to start.

Note that Amazon has this being mislabeled as being in published in April 2010, when it was published in April 2014.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Targeted Cyber Attacks review 6 juin 2014
Par Javier - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
Targeted attacks are a class of dedicated attacks that aim at a specific user, company or organization to gain access to the critical data in a stealthy manner. This book do a great work explaining the nuts and bolts of this stuff.

The book is organized along nine chapters: '1. Introduction', '2. Intelligence Gathering', '3. Infecting the Target', '4. System Exploitation', '5. Data Exfiltration Mechanisms', '6. Maintaining Control and Lateral Movement', '7. Why targeted Cyber Attacks Are Easy to Conduct?', '8. Challenges and Countermeasures' and '9. Conclusions'.

The chapter 1 lays the foundation of the different phases required for successful execution of targeted attacks. Those phases are covered in detail along chapters 2-6. I would highlight in chapter 1 how the authors makes the fine difference between targeted attacks and Advanced Persistent Threats (APT). Good to know.

This book is not a technical book. You are not going to find Assembly dead listings, IDS’ signatures and so on. It is a book commenting in the current context for targeted attacks. It does a good work though. If you want to read more on the topics it adds good references at the end of chapters.

Maybe the chapter 4 is the most technical one. It handles system exploitation. It covers the usual protection mechanisms found in systems (DEP, ASLR, etc) and how these are bypassed by advanced exploits.

The chapter 7 does a good description of Crimeware-as-a-Service (CaaS). It describes the current and developed malware economy where attackers are able to buy infrastructure and exploits to craft effective and affordable attacks.

Chapters 8 and 9 raise the awareness of the naive Internet user. It is all about risk management, best practice guidelines and the real nature of these attacks.

In summary, this book is a good and simple reference on targeted attacks. It is an useful resource to understand the purpose of targeted attacks and the intentions behind of the attackers.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Must read for those concerned about cyber safety 21 juillet 2014
Par NSlone - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché
ot only does this book show you how hackers and others commit cyber-attacks, but how to secure your system to protect it from these cyber-attacks.
Do you wonder why anyone would want to commit a cyber-attack? Quoted directly from the book, in chapter one:
"The exploitation of networks and technologies for gathering information
is now commonplace on the Internet, and targeted cyber attacks
are a common weapon for subverting the integrity of Internet operations.
These attacks steal intellectual property, conduct cyber espionage,
damage critical infrastructure and create uncertainty among
users. They can achieve both tactical and strategic goals across the
Internet without requiring any physical encroachment. It is clear that
targeted attacks provide a tactical advantage that can play a significant
role in future cyber wars." (Sood and Enbody 2014)
With so much at stake, you would think that more people would seek to learn more about these attacks in order to protect themselves. In the case of commerce, it would also protect their end users. Is your online shopping or even your email accounts safe? What about your online banking? There are so many questions and sometimes too few answers. Yet, there are people like Sood and Enbody among others, who have the answers. As long as we take the time to listen, read and learn. No books in the world will be of any value if we refuse to take the time to read, learn and follow the suggestions the authors give us.
