20:30 - 21:00 Q & A
Social media platforms have been trending as a viable communication channel for malware and botnet c2 servers. There are several reasons attackers may use social media for C2, such as hiding malicious traffic in HTTPS to whitelisted websites, rich API and difficult to block, and easy to setup with low or no operational costs, and no obvious or fixed indicators for C2 IP address.
Our talk will aim to show the attacker’s perspective on building, operating and maintaining malware and botnets that is controlled via a social media as a c2 communications channel.
In conclusion, we will look at general recommendations on mitigating and preventing the impact from attackers using social media c2 channels.
