Our Threat Report for Q1 2015 highlights the rise and fall of a major US spammer, proving that not all North America-bound spam comes from the usual suspects. Online gambling in the UK is in the spotlight when a virtual casino goes too far with their SMS advertising program. We examine the pros and cons of the DNSSEC and explain why its adoption is lagging. Surprising results are seen as Canada implements a strong anti-spam law where we observe not only a drop in spam but in overall email as well. We explain why targets of ransomware need more than credit cards to get their data back – they need bitcoins in a hurry. Longstanding vulnerabilities in home routers are uncovered and our report clarifies the risks.

  • Domain Name System (DNS) infrastructure is critical to both the Internet and most private networks, however, many recent events have shown that it is vulnerable to attack, affecting millions of users when it goes down. There are tools and processes enterprises and service providers can use to protect DNS infrastructure but real protection is difficult to achieve due to the scope of the problem. This webinar provides a detailed look at the threats to DNS infrastructure and how those threats can be mitigated.

  • This webinar discusses how Application-to-person (A2P) SMS has increasingly become a key method for organizations to communicate with their customers. This has been driven by the ubiquity of mobile phones and the universality of SMS. Unfortunately, this has also lead to a massive growth in messages being sent through illegitimate routes that bypass the operators’ billing systems. This is commonly referred to as grey routes carrying grey traffic, and is a tactic commonly used by third-party aggregators to boost their own profitability. The result is lost revenue for mobile operators who often do not have visibility and control of messages on their network.

    Andrew Conway, Head Researcher at Cloudmark is speaking:

    Hacked! The Increasing Threat of Compromised Web Servers
    Compromising of web servers is rapidly approaching large-scale mass production. Cyber criminals use factories of compromised web servers for malware distribution, spamming, DDoS attacks and other illicit activities. A malicious web site damages the reputation of the IP address associated with it, resulting in those IP addresses being blocked and negatively impacting customer experience. This session will outline threats facing hosting providers and provide strategies for mitigation.
