Living Off the Land: Red Team Survival Tactics

  • Alissa Torres
  • Wednesday, February 19th, 6:15pm - 7:15pm

Adversaries must evade and survive to win! As visibility increases for both network and host detection, attackers are walking a tightrope, having to bypass whitelisting, circumvent exploit mitigation protections, and slip past network and host-based signature and behavior detection systems to meet mission objectives. Ask any survivalist - when in hostile terrain, it is best to live off the land! With LOLBins, attackers with a little knowledge of Windows Internals (or just the right tricks in their toolbag) repurpose native Windows utilities to download additional payloads, establish persistence, perform discovery and accomplish exfiltration. Blue teams struggle to detect these techniques since they blend into the white-noise of normal operations. Join us for a walk-through of some of the best of LOLBins from recent attacks.
