Vulnerability Exploits

Adversaries look for vulnerabilities across digital assets to make inroads into an endpoint or server with the objective of planting malware, trojan, worms or bots. Also, at different stages of a malware’s evolution, there may attempts to conduct horizontal and vertical reconnaissance internally before beaconing with Command & Control Center. Establishing a communication channel with the C&C Center and exfiltrating data to a designated server becomes rather easy if vulnerabilities such as open port can be exploited.
