The recent MechaFlounder was a backdoor attack linked to Iranian threat actors who targeted Turkish entities. Similar Python-based backdoor attacks have managed to evade traditional network security defenses and propagate inside their target environments. Peter Smith, Founder and CEO of Edgewise, demonstrates the attack and how it can be stopped with zero trust security:
- Why network address-based defenses alone cannot prevent attack propagation and lateral movement of Python-based attacks
- Why protection based on software-identity verification (zero trust security) can stop such attacks
- How Purple teams can collaborate more effectively with a shared visualization and understanding of application topology and attack pathways to targets
