Advanced persistent threats, or APTs, are attackers who are well funded and highly skilled and have access to sophisticated tools. In this video, Mike Chapple explains how attackers exploit zero-day vulnerabilities and danger posed by APTs.
- [Announcer] Many attacks take place because an…organization fails to apply security patches leaving them…vulnerable to an attacker who knows how to…exploit a vulnerability.…The fix for that situation is simple.…Organizations should apply security updates as soon as…they are available from operating system and application…vendors to fortify their systems against attack.…Unfortunately, it's not always possible to protect yourself…from every possible vulnerability because not all…vulnerabilities are known.…
Consider, for example, that modern operating systems…literally contain millions of lines of code.…There is no doubt that lurking in that massive amount of…code there are new security vulnerabilities that the…security community simply hasn't discovered yet.…Those vulnerabilities can expose an organization to risk.…When a security researcher discovers a new vulnerability,…they typically handle it in an ethical and…responsible fashion.…This normally means notifying the vendor responsible for the…vulnerability and giving them the opportunity to fix it…
