Back to the future: anti-virus engines and sandboxes

Szilard Stange makes the case for multi-engine malware scanning. The VB2015 conference takes place next month (30 September to 2 October) in Prague, with an exciting programme that covers many of today's most pertinent security-related topics.

Throwback Thursday: Computer Viruses: Electronically Transmitted Disease?

This Throwback Thursday, we turn the clock back to March 2003, when VB reported on a piece of research investigating the psychological toll inflicted by computer viruses. One could argue that there is more to be feared from the malware infections of today than those of yesteryear — after all, today's malware may lead to identity theft, serious financial loss, loss of intellectual property and more. But 14 years ago virus infections were already causing anxiety, frustration and anger ...

Throwback Thursday: Safe Hex in the 21st Century

This Throwback Thursday, we turn the clock back to July 2000, when we were already being warned that virus scanners were no longer enough. How many times have we heard commentators claim that anti-virus is dead? After all, in the current threat landscape, who would use a system that relies solely on signatures of previously seen malware? In fact, AV moved well beyond signatures — even heuristic signatures — a long time ago. Fifteen years ago, many of the technologies that complement...

Paper: Not a GAMe maKER

Raul Alvarez performs low-level analysis of information-stealing trojan. The Gamker information-stealing trojan (also known as Shiz) has been around for a few years. It made the news back in 2013 when it was found to target SAP applications. Today, we publish an article by Fortinet researcher Raul Alvarez who performed a low-level analysis of the trojan, in which he focused on its code injection and API-hooking routines. You can read the article here in HTML format or download it...

VB2015 preview: advanced persistent threats

Several conference papers to deal with targeted attacks. There was a time when analyses of malware and viruses at the Virus Bulletin conference used the number of infections as a measure of the harm done. And while there are still many talks on what is now referred to as 'opportunistic malware', targeted attacks, or APTs, have become a prominent feature of recent conference programmes. VB2015 is no exception. Those who think that cyber-espionage attacks are the domain of the global...

Throwback Thursday: The Virus Analyst Headache

This Throwback Thursday, we turn the clock back to April 1999, when the average virus analyst had to manually process around ten or more viruses per day, and the growing complexity and volume of viruses was proving a headache. By the early years of the 21st century, the volume of malware was such that no functioning virus lab would be able to process all newly discovered malicious samples without the help of automated analysis systems. In 1999, however, everything was still done manually...
