Tradecraft Tuesday - Malvertising (Malicious Advertising)
April 5, 2016
What is Tradecraft Tuesday?Every Tuesday at 12pm ET, Chris Bisnett and Kyle Hanslovan expose the techniques used by hackers. With their 20 combined years in offensive cyber security and digital forensics, Chris and Kyle cover a new topic each week in a LIVE video chat. These unrehearsed conversations allow anyone to join in, ask questions, and share their experiences from offensive and defensive perspectives. In case you miss an episode, each recorded session will be uploaded to Cybrary's new CH4NN3L platform. On today's episode, we'll cover a fairly new concept for spreading malware called Malvertising (a portmanteau of Malicious Advertising). With this technique, hackers use online advertising to infect unsuspecting victims and spread malware. Join us as we introduce the topic, recap the brief history of this tradecraft, explain the various methods hackers use, and share some preventative methods to help you avoid attacks.Chris BisnettChris Bisnett is a veteran information security researcher with more than a decade of experience in offensive and defensive cyber operations.
