Defending Against User-level Information Exfiltration(Link)

IEEE IT Professional
December 2011

Conventional security precautions are no longer adequate to protect users and organizations in the current environment. In the past decade the internet has both come to play a critical role for both individuals and organizations as well as become far more dangerous. Users, in both their home and work environments, mix activities on the internet (browsing, e-mail, social networking) with other activities. This mixing of activities with different security contexts greatly increases users risk exposure. Fortunately, operating system security has increased significantly over the past decade and it is now significantly easier to compromise applications than it is to compromise the operating system. Unfortunately, while compromising the operating system is a more valuable exploitation, most of the value of an exploit can be obtained from user level compromises. Since modern operating systems currently have limited capabilities for managing information flow within the context of a user, compromise of a user allows relatively straightforward exfiltration of data that the user had access to. Unfortunately, such attacks are now widespread (this attack approach is included under the Advanced Persistent Threat exploitations).
