Attackers are in a constant race to update and refine their approach to stay a step ahead of cybersecurity professionals. Recently, cybercriminals have adjusted the delivery mechanism of their "payload" away from traditional attack methods. Most often, security breaches are associated with a malicious executable program that runs on a user endpoint. This typically occurs when an executable file is disguised as another type of file (for example, a PDF) or is hidden in a zipped folder. When the file is opened, the executable runs and infects the user with its "payload." This traditional approach by malicious actors is generally perceived as a classic hacking technique.
