ON THE FRONT LINES
September 3, 2019 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm
CyberArk’s On The Front Lines webinar series covers a variety of hot topics related to security exploits involving privileged accounts. Our security experts will review a potential threat and demonstrate CyberArk technology and best practices for mitigating risks.
Webinars will be offered the first Tuesday of each month at both 9:00 am ET and 2:00 pm ET.
Often, attackers need to achieve admin privilege in order to steal credentials, perform lateral movement and inflict maximum damage. There has been a significant rise in the awareness of the advantages of following the principle of least privilege – this awareness coupled with the improvements made to operating systems makes escalation attempts more challenging than ever before. Nonetheless, attackers are persistent and continue to discover new privilege escalation vulnerabilities on almost a weekly basis. Attend this webinar to better understand privilege escalation vulnerabilities. We will showcase real privilege escalation attacks, and we will give a technical demonstration of how an attacker might escalate privilege on a fully patched system:
- Obtaining domain admin privileges by having local administrative rights.
- Misconfiguration of SUID allows an attacker to gain Root privileges
