Security experts rate the world’s most dangerous exploits

Criminal hackers continue to penetrate many more company networks than most administrators care to admit, according to two security experts who offered a list of the most effective exploits used to gain entry.

Topping the list is an attack dubbed super-flexible pivoting. It abuses Linux machines connected to a network’s DMZ, or demilitarized zone, to bypass corporate firewalls and access sensitive resources on an internal network. The technique has already been used to steal vast amounts of data, including “millions of credit cards,” said Ed Skoudis, a senior security consultant for InGuardians, a security company that frequently responds to major network breaches.
