Dissecting the malware technique that keeps threat hunters guessing
For cybersecurity professionals and threat hunters, it can feel like advanced persistent threats are always one step ahead – especially in the case of modern domain generation algorithms (DGAs).
In this whiteboard video, BlueCat’s CTO, Andrew Wertkin explains:

- How these domains are generated, what they look like, and how they connect to malware
- The patterns your DNS data can reveal to help you weed out and block the malicious domains
