It’s sad to say this in 2016, but GovRAT 2.0 once again highlights the password threat again, as it exfiltrates such data from network traffic. Advanced malware causes a virtually unstoppable attack vector for the whole infrastructure through these stolen credentials. Therefore, organizations should seek to deploy technologies such as user behavior analytics to identify misuse of digital assets in the very early stages.”
