Moving rules in the rulebase has never been easier

You've created a new rule but it ended up at the end of your rulebase, you haven't had coffee yet and there's someone standing at your desk because this is mission critical and urgent. How can the rule be moved into its designated spot quickly so you can go get a coffee?

Unauthorized Coin Mining in the Browser

by ‎10-24-2017 06:21 AM - edited ‎11-15-2017 12:25 AM (4,581 Views)

The popularity of CryptoCurrency is on the rise. Mining is more difficult, requiring data centers of dedicated servers to turn a profit. A new mining technique uses the combined computing power of thousands of endpoints that mine through a script run in the browser -- definite potential for abuse.

Malware vs exploits --the differences between the two attack vectors to an endpoint and how each attack, if successful, is used to compromise an endpoint.
