Hikvision Tips to Prevent Exploits and Account Hacks

Threat actors are using backdoor exploits to attack businesses, according to the Security magazine article, “New Cyberattack Tactics Against Businesses Require Advanced Network Defenses.”

From the article: “SMB exploits have also become a common attack tactic for threat actors … [SMB servers may be compromised] through exploits such as EternlBlue or DoublePulsar lets attackers use them as entry points to breach the organization, move laterally, search for other high-value hosts and even schedule tasks remotely on a computer from the network that has an exposed share.”

Password theft, unpatched vulnerabilities, network attacks on endpoints and emails pose some of the largest threats for cybersecurity teams. The article recommends network attack defense technologies to prevent security breach, which “can detect and block new types of threats earlier in the attack chain, while correlating multiple attack vectors using both signatures and behavior-based machine learning.”
