Learn how to strengthen your network's host- and network-based defense against attackers' number one remote exploit-the client-side attack
Defend your network against attacks that target your company's most vulnerable asset-the end user
Individuals wishing to attack a companyís network have found a new path of least resistance-the end user. A client- side attack is one that uses the inexperience of the end user to create a foothold in the userís machine and therefore the network. Client-side attacks are everywhere and hidden in plain sight. Common hiding places are malicious Web sites and spam. A simple click of a link will allow the attacker to enter. This book presents a framework for defending your network against these attacks in an environment where it might seem impossible.
The most current attacks are discussed along with their delivery methods, such as browser exploitation, use of rich Internet applications, and file format vulnerabilities. The severity of these attacks is examined along with defences against them, including antivirus and anti-spyware, intrusion detection systems, and end-user education.
