Port 53: The abused land of DNS tunneling by malware pirates
Malwares are common,complex and so are malware authors. The vast world of internet’s policy of knowledge sharing and product trials have given researchers and malware authors equal rights when it comes to resource access. This is led to trail of malwares over security products and even abusing some of the key network features like DNS tunneling. The talk deals about how modern day malwares operate, how they evade the latest security products and how they exiltrate the stolen data via legit DNS tunneling channels.
