SafeBreach CTO discusses how BackdorOS works and why security teams need to be aware of this entirely new type of malware
Sunnyvale, CA, October 9th, 2019 -- SafeBreach Inc, maker of the industry leading Breach and Attack Simulation platform, announced today that Itzik Kotler, CTO and Co-Founder of SafeBreach, will deliver an in-depth briefing at Texas Cyber Summit 2019 entitled, FR-2016 Red Team BackdorOS; in-Memory, on Thursday, October 10, 2019 at 3:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. CT in the Texas Ballroom.
Kotler will present research from SafeBreach Labs that led to the research of BackdorOS, a new stealth malicious in-memory OS. This malicious OS, just like a regular OS, provides a software platform on top of which applications run. Kotler will demonstrate existing applications that can run on top of it, as well as show how one might develop new applications for BackdorOS. Kotler will conclude his presentation with detailed information on how to detect and remediate BackdorOS and related security threats.
