Outmaneuvering Advanced and Evasive Malware ThreatsWhat are Advanced and Evasive Threats?
A cyber attack exploiting a vulnerability in software where the vulnerability is not known across the general security community. It's the threat CISOs fear the most because there are no countermeasures currently written for it.
An Evasive Threat is a threat intentionally designed to evade existing security controls. An Advanced Threat is a targeted threat. It may be ‘off-the-shelf’ and been seen before, or be a zero-day threat.
