Battling Fraud at the Root Cause
Recent attacks have shown that once a user's endpoint is infected with advanced malware, criminals can bypass most security layers, including two-factor authentication, device ID systems, risk engines and behavioral analytic systems. Banking malware such as Citadel, Zeus, Dyre and Bugat, incorporate advanced functionality that enables attackers to "fly under the radar" and elude detection by both the end user and banking security systems.
Effectively combating cybercriminals requires understanding how they operate. How do they render endpoint protection solutions inoperable? What methods do they use to sidestep two- factor authentication? How do they trick device ID systems and behavioral analytic and risk engines into believing their transactions are legitimate?
Download this white paper to get an overview of how cybercriminals circumvent security measures at each stage of a transaction's lifecycle - pre-login, during login and post-login - and offers strategies to help financial organizations combat malware-driven attacks.
