Comment on Ukraine Cyber Attack from Arxan Technologies

Mark Noctor, VP EMEA at Arxan Technologies, comments: “The huge cyber attack unfolding in the Ukraine and across the world today demonstrates how important it is to protect all potential entry points against attack.

Some threat intelligence reports indicate that the banking trojan Loki Bot, which can infect native Android OS libraries, was used in the attack, demonstrating that everything from external firewalls to mobile apps and endpoints themselves are vulnerable to exploitation by high level attackers. Organisations making use of mobile apps, particularly high risk areas such as banking and finance, much ensure they deploy advanced security measures such as code hardening and debugger detection to minimise the threat of apps being used to target core infrastructure.”
