How Bots Win: Bot Defense Bypass Techniques

Tuesday, April 25th 2023 13:47 GMT / 14:47 CET

About this event

Bots running rife on the internet is nothing new, but if recent incidents like widespread PS5 scalping or credential stuffing of major brands’ websites are anything to go by, bot attacks have become a major disruptor to businesses.

Businesses have long fought back to detect and block such attacks, yet bot operators quickly adapt to ensure they continually evade detection. How do bot operators win against their victims so frequently? And how do bots routinely beat defenses developed to stop them?

In this webinar, Netacea Principal Security Researcher Cyril Noel-Tagoe breaks down the bot attack lifecycle, showing how bot attacks slip under the radar of many popular anti-bot technologies using tactics such as proxying to residential IPs, CAPTCHA farms, and de-obfuscation of code used by bot detection tools.
