Today’s consumer-facing websites and mobile apps are measured by the size and growth of their user account base, as users are both contributors of content and a channel for monetization. Despite being the backbone of online services, these user accounts are also their Achilles heel. Well-organized crime rings have created millions of fake user accounts to hide among billions of benign users, and they are waging a variety of large-scale attacks to exploit these services for financial gain.
Yinglian Xie describes the anatomy of modern online services and the sophisticated attack techniques that have been used across a number of services, including social networking, gaming, financial, ecommerce, and other vertical markets. Yinglian demonstrates how these types of attacks can be detected and mitigated by leveraging Spark-based big data security analytics.
