About the Session

One week before the DDoS attacks on the Ukrainian government, we noticed suspicious behavior on one of our deception environments. Threat actors were exploiting the CVE-2021-4034 vulnerability in an attempt to attack Ukrainian government infrastructure.

This presentation will be a deep dive into the technical aspects of the attack, as well as the implications of it and how deception was uniquely positioned to detect it and provide the intel needed to stop the attack.
