Cybercriminals are once again abusing trusted applications, such as Microsoft Office, to launch multi-stage attacks inside malicious documents to deliver Formbook malware.
Menlo Security researchers discovered a new multi-stage document attack that exploits design behaviors in .docx and RTF, along with CVE-2017-8570, to drop a malicious payload called Formbook on target endpoints, while bypassing traditional security tools.

Pacific Tech has inked a distribution deal with Menlo Security which will see it distributing the vendor’s Isolation Platform across Singapore and Brunei. The Menlo Security Isolation Platform executes web content, email links and documents in the cloud removing the possibility of malware reaching end user devices.
Menlo Security has chosen Pacific Tech Pte Ltd to distribute its award-winning Isolation Platform across Singapore and Brunei. In light of high profile global malware attacks, together with a growing recognition of remote browser as a security solution, this is excellent news for these well-established and dynamic business communities.
Menlo Security has signed a distribution agreement with Hong Kong-based Edvance to distribute its browser Isolation Platform across both Hong Kong and Macau. The deal comes after reinvigorated interest in isolation technology after major high-profile global malware attacks. Menlo Security provides browser-based isolation technology as its premier security solution.
Menlo Security announced that it has chosen Ingram Micro to distribute its award-winning remote browser Isolation Platform across Singapore and Thailand. In the light of recent global malware attacks, together with a growing recognition of Remote Browser as a security solution, this is excellent news for the local business community.
Ingram Micro has scored distribution rights for Menlo Security's browser Isolation Platform across Singapore and Thailand. The browser Isolation Platform allows attacks to be blocked by isolating all internet browsing from endpoints and networks instead of trying to distinguish good content from bad content.
The sharing of threat intelligence has long been something of a contentious issue within the security sector and one that has very much been pushed to the forefront of the industry in recent times.
As the threat landscape has continued to develop , people and businesses have realised that the sheer number of cyber threats and security vulnerabilities doing the rounds these days is simply too great for any one organisation to tackle by themselves.
Email and the web continue to remain one of hackers' most popular points of entry into an environment. As a result, security vendors are unveiling new offerings to pinpoint threats and prevent user error that can lead to an attack.
As a result, security vendors are unveiling new offerings to pinpoint threats and prevent user error that can lead to an attack. Companies also are ramping up their efforts around application security, protecting their critical applications in the event of an attack and looking to close vulnerabilities from the start of the development process. As companies look to protect their environments from all angles, take a look at 20 companies, including Menlo Security, looking to change the game around web, email and application security.
Cybersecurity researchers have recently uncovered a sophisticated spear phishing attack at a well-known enterprise that went undetected by existing security solutions. A close examination of the recent spear phishing event by Menlo Security researchers revealed that the attackers performed various checks on the password entered by the victim and their IP address to determine whether it was a true compromise versus somebody who had figured out the attack.
Menlo Security researchers recently uncovered a highly-customized phishing campaign that lifted reams of personally identifiable information (PII) without detection.
The sophisticated spear phishing attack took place at a “well-known enterprise,” Menlo Security said in its report, going undetected by existing security solutions.
Nearly half of the world’s top one million websites are vulnerable to malware, turning browsing into a security minefield for users, according to new research from Menlo Security.
According to a new study of the top one million domains, 46 percent are running vulnerable software, are known phishing sites, or have had a security breach in the past twelve months.
The big problem is that even when a website is managed by a careful company, it will often load content from other sites, said Kowsik Guruswamy, CTO at Menlo Park, Calif.-based Menlo Security, which sponsored the report, which was released this morning.
Nearly half (46%) of the Alexa top one million websites were found to be risky, putting businesses at risk as their users visits these sites.
The finding is part of a new report published by Menlo Security entitled "State of the Web 2016: Quantifying Today's Internet Risk," where researchers examined key characteristics of the top one million websites, as ranked by Alexa, to determine sources of risk.
Menlo Security Releases State of The Web 2016 Illuminating Widespread Vulnerability
MENLO PARK, Calif. Dec. 13, 2016 – Menlo Security, a pioneer of malware isolation, today announced the availability of its State of The Web 2016 report. The surprising results reveal that nearly half (46%) of the Internet’s top 1 million web sites, as ranked by Alexa, are risky. This is largely due to vulnerable software running on web servers and on underlying ad network domains. The results are significant because risky sites have never been easier to exploit, and traditional security products fail to provide adequate protection. Attackers have their veritable choice of half the web to exploit, allowing them to launch phishing attacks from legitimate sites.
Amir Ben-Efraim's cybersecurity startup Menlo Security was only a year old when he reached out to JPMorgan Chase, telling it how the 30-employee Menlo could help it deal with malware and phishing attacks.
Within a couple of weeks, Menlo was in discussions with the heads of cyberengineering at JPMorgan, talking about what types of controls and other specifications would need to be in place before the megabank could test Menlo's technology.
