Fin7 is a cybercrime group that employs spear phishing attacks to deliver malware that uses fileless malware techniques, sophisticated evasions and persistence. They mostly target the financial sector. In this blog, we are going to take a high-level look at one such sample seen in the wild, which employs several layers of obfuscated JScript, powershell and DLL embedded within a Microsoft Word document. The sample analyzed has the MD5 hash 29a3666cee0762fcd731fa663ebc0011. Through a series of deeply embedded base64 encoded scripts, obfuscated code and use of powershell, this strain achieves stealth and evasion. The document arrives as an email attachment in…

Healthy growth is something every company strives for. As with human development, the rate of growth can impact a business’s well-being: Grow too slowly, and the business can become stagnant or obsolete. Grow too quickly, and the business will experience growing pains that could threaten its overall health. In every sector, managing growth effectively can ensure longevity for the business. In the healthcare space, however, it can mean the difference between life and death—for the business and its customers. As a medical practice or healthcare facility expands, either organically or through acquisition, is its existing network capable of handling the…

SD-WAN Clears the Path for VoIP Traffic

Voice over IP (VoIP), or IP telephony, has been widely available since the early 1990s, when the concept of transmitting voice as data packets across the internet became a reality. Early VoIP systems suffered from packet loss and jitter, resulting in conversations that sounded as though the caller was speaking through a moving fan—if the call wasn’t dropped altogether, of course. Luckily, VoIP technology has improved to the point where it has now become a commodity service for most companies. According to one research firm, the VoIP services market is expected to reach more than US$140 billion in 2021. Other…

Banks and financial institutions are more technology-reliant than ever before as they seek to be more customer-centric in their offerings. As such, the branch plays a major role in their quest for customer service excellence, giving customers a place to conduct transactions, receive personalized attention from bank reps and take advantage of next-generation technologies such as video how-to’s or chatbots to further enhance their banking experience. Some banks have taken customer-centricity one step further, opening their branches to act as neighborhood community centers or gathering places for organizations. Some bank branches make their videoconferencing systems available for customers to use,…

Apache’s gaps has been in news for quite a while, and this has led to the massive milestone of Equifax being compromised to the tune of 143 million records. This has been a difficult year for Apache, with so many vulnerabilities being reported. Refer to the link for a list of Apache vulnerabilities reported in 2017.  Though previous years also accounted for large chunks of Apache vulnerability, this year it has been in news for two particular vulnerabilities, CVE-2017-5638 (which led to the compromise of user data through the Equifax breach) and CVE-2017-9805 (due to the fact that the public…

Taking the Pain Out of Managing Multiple Retail Sites

Much has changed in the retail space since the electronic cash register came on the scene in the 1970s. What was once a manual process of locations counting their tills and sending the receipt information to the head office became a faster, easier and more precise endeavor, as the machines could transmit the sales information directly without the need for human interaction—besides pressing a few buttons, of course. Today, technology in retail touches the entire process, from inventory ordering and management to sales transactions and even customer satisfaction and retention. It could easily be argued that retailers today are more…

SD-WAN: More than a Hybrid WAN

By Versa Staff
Versa Networks
June 7, 2017

Companies looking to expand their WAN networks are rich in choices: They can stick with a traditional WAN or go with a hybrid or SD-WAN architecture. Given the costs and provisioning delays associated with traditional WANs, a growing number of companies are turning to hybrid or SD-WAN. It only makes sense: Because they facilitate the use of direct internet access (broadband) as an alternative method of branch connectivity. Hybrid and SD-WANs are much lower in cost than MPLS WANs. However, there are distinct differences between hybrid WAN and SD-WAN architectures that are worth noting, especially for companies looking for more…

Digital Transformation with Versa’s SD-Branch

May 10, 2017

Enterprise CIOs are preparing for a digital transformation by developing strategies that “software define” different aspects of their architecture, processes and organization. In general, this strategy includes creating and adopting new, nimbler operational processes that are automated and provide better total cost of ownership in all aspects of the business. This transformation began in enterprise application and data center domains a couple of years back. Many enterprises adopted new Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models and began moving business-critical applications to public cloud infrastructures. Consequently, today’s enterprise data center and IT application environments are simpler. The popularity of Amazon AWS and Microsoft Azure…
