An application layer DDoS attack, also known as a Layer 7 (L7) DDoS attack, targets the application layer of the OSI model. This type of DDoS attack focuses on disrupting specific functions or features of a website or online service. Layer 7 attacks leverage loopholes, vulnerabilities, or business logic flaws in the application layer to orchestrate the attacks. Here are the key characteristics and methods: Examples of L7 attacks are Slowloris, GET/POST Floods, etc.

If your device suddenly behaves like a re-animated zombie, it might be under a botnet attack. Botnet attacks, also known as zombie armies, involve hijacking internet-connected devices infected with malware, controlled remotely by a single hacker. These attacks can reach immense scales, as demonstrated by an incident where 1.5 million connected cameras were exploited to overwhelm and take down a journalist’s website.

On June 7, 2024, a new critical PHP vulnerability CVE-2024-4577 was revealed, mainly impacting XAMPP on Windows. It happens when PHP runs in CGI mode with specific language settings, like Chinese or Japanese. The problem comes from how PHP handles certain characters, allowing attackers to inject code through web requests and take control of servers. This vulnerability, if exploited, could lead to the execution of arbitrary code, a scenario with severe consequences for system integrity and data security.

Overview: According to TechTarget, 94% of organizations experience security problems in production APIs, and one in five suffers a data breach. The primary reason is that most tech leaders assume that having a strong authentication and authorisation framework is enough to secure APIs. As a result, cyberattacks on APIs increased from 35% in 2022 to 46% in 2023, and this trend continues to rise. Join Karthik Krishnamoorthy, CTO and Vivekanand Gopalan Gopalan, VP of Products at Indusface, in this webinar as they demonstrate how APIs can be hacked.

Overview: Periodic security audits and compliance requirements have been a major source of stress for IT and security leaders. Especially as they demand a clean, zero-vulnerability report every 6-12 months in highly regulated industries. That is a big challenge in the face of hundreds of open vulnerabilities and zero-days. With this in mind, we have launched, SwyftComply on AppTrana WAAP. With SwyftComply, you’ll be able to get a clean, zero-vulnerability report within 72 hours.

CVSS score is valuable for assessing open vulnerability risk. However, despite the obvious difference in risk, CVSS scores overlook the distinction between vulnerabilities in staging versus production. This issue compounds with factors such as the number and types of applications, vulnerability types, and zero-day threats. Ultimately, leading to Alert Fatigue that helps no one as security teams need to triage 100s of vulnerabilities.

Account takeover attacks have increased by 354% y-o-y in 2023. What’s worse? It takes 11 months to solve an ATO breach. By that time, attackers would have laterally traversed your entire digital infrastructure, including databases. So, how do you protect your organisations against sophisticated ATO attacks that even bypass 2FA? In this live attack simulation, Karthik Krishnamoorthy (CTO) and Vivekanand Gopalan (VP of Products) demonstrate various ways in which account takeover can happen, along with practices to protect your websites and APIs against ATO attacks.

SOC 2, ISO270001, PCI, and other regional laws require you to have a clean, zero-vulnerability report. That said, even critical vulnerabilities take 250+ days to patch, especially when these exist in third-party plug-ins, open-source libraries, or legacy code. Compounding the problem are zero-day vulnerabilities like the MOVEit SQLi, Zimbra XSS, and 300+ such vulnerabilities that get discovered each month.
