Our recent webinar From Malvertising to Ransomware highlight the clear connection between malvertising—the practice of embedding malicious code within legitimate online advertisements—and the epidemic of ransomware attacks affecting businesses globally.
Presented by Mark Stockley, security evangelist at Malwarebytes, and Jerome Segura, Director of Threat Intelligence at Malwarebytes, the webinar explains how malvertising has evolved into an effective entry point in the cyberattack “kill chain.”
By leveraging the broad reach and precision targeting of digital advertising, threat actors can compromise systems, gather valuable credentials, and ultimately lay the groundwork for debilitating ransomware attacks. Speakers mention the Royal ransomware group as just one example of a threat actor using this tactic.
Toward the end of the webinar, the speakers provide a set of tips for protecting businesses from these attacks, including the importance of tools such as Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) in combatting them.
