Ransomware vs. AI. Part 1 - Overview of AV Bypassing Techniques Used in Targeted Ransomware Attacks

Tid: 10 juni 2020 09:00-09:45
Plats: BTH Campus Gräsvik, Karlskrona

The Professional Masters in Information Security project (PROMIS -promisedu.se) presents online inspiration seminars on cutting edge topics and areas.

At the end of the seminars we will shortly also discuss and show our new educational initiative, and courses specifically adapted towards the security area FOR industry/working active people looking to further their knowledge in the area. The courses are full university courses but given in a manner so that you can take them on distance without disturbing your work!

”Ransomware vs. AI. Part 1 – Overview of AV Bypassing Techniques Used in Targeted Ransomware Attacks.”

A modern cybersecurity solution cannot be imagined without using Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning for detecting cyberattacks. In this regard, two main approaches are typically used: finding patterns of known cyberattacks and anomaly detection for unknown ones.

Therefore, to bypass anti-malware protection, attackers invest their efforts into changing the behavior to break the existing detection pattern. Moreover, they try to mimic benign application form and behavior to not being discovered as an anomaly. For example, we’ll consider tactics and techniques used in the well-known targeted ransomware attacks happened last year in LockerGoga, MegaCortex, Buran, and Ryuk ransomware to reduce the footprint in a victim’s system that includes the usage of digital signature, multiprocess encryption, and replacing Microsoft CryptoAPI with hardcoded open-source crypto code.

APT3, APT10, APT28, APT41, Sandworm, Energeticbear, Equation Group, Unit 99650 ++  is the name connected to the last year’s trend change, from Anonymus attack to APT’s that use specially composed malware against selected spear pointed targets.

They had developed a calculated CKC, Cyber Kill Chain.

Who is behind those and the Infrastructure attacks we notice in both Europa and the US? Is it organized crime, is it state-funded or both?

The presentation includes an overview starting from 2014 and the attacks in Ukraine when Russia invaded Crimea, describing True Postnord ransomware attack that targets Sweden. Also Wanacry, NotPetya, Medoc to Shadow Brokers leak of ”Vault 7 from NSA to 2019’s  trend of ransomware attacks targeting companies and the US government. Only in 2019, ransomware in the US hit 103 federal, state and municipal agencies, 759 healthcare providers, and 86 schools and universities. The incidents were not merely expensive inconveniences; the disruption they caused put people’s health, safety, and lives at risk. Atalanta spend 2.6 million to restore the system rather than pay  €52000 in ransom, many officials have now decided that it is cheaper to pay the hackers, now the price got higher.
Are Swedish organization prepared?

“Ransomware vs. AI. Part 2 – Bypassing Ransomware Protection with Reinforcement Learning”

Reinforcement learning is a well-known concept used in the gaming industry, mostly in real-time strategies, to support computer players with AI. It is also known that AlphaGo, a computer program designed by DeepMind, has been recognized as the best Go and chess player in the world. The algorithm was trained by playing with human players as well as with other instances of itself to improve its play.

So, what if we use RL in Security Testing to discover vulnerabilities in products and weaknesses in defense? To prove that hypothesis, we applied RL to run ransomware simulation that can learn how to bypass anti-ransomware protection. We’ll present our results in the presentation.

”Sudden artifacts during the forensic”

The computer forensics is a standardized and sometimes boring process when scrupulousness is very important because every little thing needs to be taken into account as digital evidence. Mostly, it takes a long time. However, sometimes findings during investigations become not only unexpected but also frightening. On the other hand, sometimes the investigation is stopped due to the lack of hypotheses, and only a happy case allows to get off the ground and find a way to continue the investigation. During this session, we will present to you artifacts from different forensic investigations which were very unexpected and changed the course of the entire investigation or were so significant that they caused an ambiguous reaction of responsible persons. Sometimes it was fun, but sometimes it was a marker of the critical situation with the necessity of emergency reaction.
