The Malware-as-a-Service (MaaS) model poses a significant threat in the realm of cybersecurity. This model allows individuals or groups with limited technical expertise...

In fact, decrypting and re-encrypting traffic through a proxy device, a firewall, intrusion detection or prevention systems (IDS/IPS) that that doesn't properly validate transport layer security (TLS) certificates, for instance, will weaken the end-to-end protection provided by the TLS encryption to the end-users, drastically increasing...
