Cyber Threat Analysis 2024: Picus Red Report


In the latest edition of the annual Picus Red Report, experts from Picus Labs present a detailed analysis of the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) most frequently used by cybercriminals last year. Focusing on the growing threat of 'Hunter-killer' malware, the report provides invaluable insights to understand the latest trends in cyber attacks and how to counter them.



Key findings and techniques

The analysis conducted by Picus Labs was based on the examination of over 600,000 malware samples, which allowed the identification of 10 key MITRE ATT&CK® techniques. This year, particular attention was paid to process injection (T1055) and command and scripting interpreter (T1059) techniques, which play a crucial role in circumventing security systems.

The popularity of techniques aimed at deactivating defenses (T1562) also increased, marking a 333% increase compared to the previous year. This phenomenon shows how criminals adapt their attack methods to become more elusive to traditional security tools.


What's new in 'Hunter-killer' threats?

Hunter-killer malware is characterized by its ability to actively search for and disable defense mechanisms, allowing it to remain undetected for longer. Like silent, efficient submarines that eliminate enemies in deep waters, these malware types silently navigate through security measures to perform their malicious activities unnoticed. The report notes that in 2023, 26% of the analyzed malware had capabilities of this type, a significant increase from 6% in 2022.
