When Cyemptive detected hackers breaking into their VPNs, it was a very disturbing scenario to realize we were experiencing one of the most advanced back doors hacks which would apply to practically all corporate networks.  

Most companies leverage VPN technology to securely join multiple office locations or enable remote users to connect into corporate offices, not realizing the risks they have now enabled against their own corporate network. Cyemptive Technologies warned the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of VPN security hacks taking place against VPN technologies, based on attempted attacks it was seeing among its customers. As a result of the information provided by Cyemptive, DHS initiated their own research, culminating in the announcement by DHS that there are specific vulnerabilities with VPN technology and publication of an article based on that information from Cyemptive.

Although the market has responded quickly to the DHS announcement and has patched the VPNs, many more security issues relating to VPNs continue to arise that organizations should be aware of.

The purpose of the presentation is to outline the risks and solutions associated with one of the most advanced back door hacks existing in the world today, impacting practically all existing corporate networks.
