Subject: [Newsletter/Marketing] [ISN] MITRE asks vendors to do more to
 detect stealthy hacks

By Sean Lyngaas
MAY 1, 2019

As hackers continue to use native programming tools to blend into target 
networks, Mitre Corp. is beginning to test vendors’ ability to detect those 

The federally-funded, not-for-profit organization announced Wednesday it would 
throw the stealthy tactics of an infamous hacking group, the 
Russian-government-linked APT29, at several threat-detection products.

But the evaluation is about more than one set of adversaries. The “living off 
the land” techniques, such as hiding in PowerShell scripts, that will be tested 
are increasingly popular with a variety of hacking groups.

“A lot of these techniques are going to be implemented in similar ways from 
different adversaries,” said Frank Duff, Mitre’s lead for evaluations that use 
the organization’s ATT&CK framework.
