Fileless attacks

In just the first half of 2021, script-based fileless malware attacks have already nearly reached their entire 2021 total, which in itself was up 888% from the year prior. These highly evasive threats use living-off-the-land (LotL) techniques to fly in under the radar and sneak past many legacy endpoint protections. In this Cybersecurity Insights, WatchGuard Security Operations Manager Marc Laliberte will discuss what fileless malware is, how it works, how attackers are using it, and what you need to do to keep your systems safe from this massively popular threat.
