iBoss blog: Beware of Malware Stealing Privileged Credentials

When it comes to stealing information, hackers know where to look, and it usually is those users who have the most privilege or greatest access to network and system resources. The typical attack is to somehow locate one of your network’s weakly-protected PCs, create a rogue guest account to gain initial access, and then try to escalate this account to an administrator or someone who has more access rights to do more damage or obtain sensitive information. I talk more about this on a recent blog post for iBoss here.
