GPUs Could Become Trojan Horses for Future Cyber Attacks

Trojan Horse for Malware

The graphics card inside your computer is a powerful tool for gaming and creative work, but it can also potentially serve as a Trojan horse for malware. Cybercriminals are finding ways to exploit graphics cards and their VRAM to inject malicious code into your system. The approach is claimed to have worked during a proof-of-concept hack on both discrete and integrated GPUs from AMD, Intel, and Nvidia.

Because antivirus software today cannot scan the graphics card’s own video RAM, known as VRAM, hackers are now targeting GPUs to carry out their dirty work. On the other hand, conventional methods used today that target the system’s main memory would trigger the antivirus software.

According to Bleeping Computer, a brief description of the hack was posted on a hacker forum, where one seller was trying to sell his proof-of-concept method to exploit the VRAM on GPUs. The seller stated that the method worked on Intel’s integrated UHD 620 and 630 graphics, as well as discrete solutions including the AMD Radeon RX 5700 and Nvidia GeForce GTX 1650. It’s unclear if the attack would also work on other GPUs, like the recent Radeom RX 6000 series from AMD and theGeforce RTX 3000 series from Nvidia, both of which have seen high demand and short supply.

Why Is Spam Such a Problem?

Why Is Spam Such a Problem?

Spam Can Be the Root Cause of Many Business Problems 

The average worker in 2020 received a whopping 121 emails per day. More than four-of-every-five of those emails were spam. Email spam has long since been a problem for the small and medium-sized business. For years spam protection meant turning on your filter inside your email program.

Today’s email-based threats demand more attention.

If spam is a major problem for your business—and if you don’t have protection already, it likely is—now is the time to do something about it. The professional IT experts at Bluetek IT Solutions have an answer to help you reduce the strain that spam puts on your business: our comprehensive Spam Protection service.

Spam Doesn’t Just Deliver Malware

The phishing attack is the number one scam carried out on businesses today. What if the company that gets hit with ransomware or other malware could go back and keep that email from getting through to the person who fell for the scam? Today, Bluetek IT Solutions offers spam protection that can keep those attacks out of your employees’ inboxes. This not only eliminates the threat of a malware attack but also saves time. Here are the main benefits of deploying spam protection:

  • It saves the time of your IT staff, who probably spends too much time on email security and maintenance as it is. 
  • It saves the time of your employees. Spam plies up in their inboxes, which in turn stymies their productivity as they have to spend more time ascertaining what emails are actionable and which are disposable. 
  • It keeps threats at bay. 
  • It keeps your email server from being overloaded with emails that are either nefarious or at the least, a waste of time. 

Spam protection serves as a critical part of any threat protection strategy.

Stop Phishing in Its Tracks

Spam Protection Significantly Reduces Exposure to Phishing 

Phishing is the number one method for stealing credentials, disseminating malware, and gaining unauthorized access to your business’ network. If you combine a strong training regime with a comprehensive Spam Protection service from Bluetek IT Solutions, you can put a major dent into your business’ potential exposure to email-based threats. More than that, our Spam Protection service provides decision-makers the peace of mind that their staff isn’t being constantly exposed to situations where one wrong move could mean major problems for your business.
