Attack Chain-based Threat Aware System

With the network threat forms becoming more and more diversified and complex and challenges from advanced persistent threat (APT) attacks, new-generation threats spread more quickly on a larger scale, covering mobile devices, desktops, networks, web, applications, and social networks. In the new normal situation, it is far from enough for customers to obtain threat information only from traditional network intrusion prevention system (NIPS) and network intrusion detection system (NIDS) devices, and professional, systematical, and intelligent devices are becoming really crucial. In particular, with the development of the Internet and improvement of user experience requirements, network threat behaviors should be detected through big data analysis to show customers the entire dynamic attack process intuitively.

SYNful Knock, a New Backdoor Targeting Cisco Routers

How many people and companies use Cisco routers? You do not need to be a system integration engineer to know the specific figure. Baidu will tell you the answer.

Once an attacker gets the knack of exploiting such backdoors, he or she can use them against those routers in a long time. Are you scared of that?
