  • Alert: New WailingCrab Malware Loader Spreading via Shipping-Themed Emails
    on 2023-11-23 at 17:40

    “The malware itself is split into multiple components, including a loader, injector, downloader and backdoor, and successful requests to C2-controlled servers are often necessary to retrieve the next stage,” IBM X-Force researchers Charlotte Hammond, Ole Villadsen, and Kat Metrick said . The attack chains commence with emails bearing PDF attachments containing URLs that, when clicked, download a JavaScript file designed to retrieve and launch the WailingCrab loader hosted on Discord.

  • Stealthy Malware Leverages MQTT Protocol in Spam Campaigns | Decipher – Duo Security
    on 2023-11-22 at 22:42

    The threat actors behind a sophisticated malware that was discovered less than a year ago have recently expanded their targeting and updated the malware’s C2 communication tactics in an attempt to make it more difficult for security teams to detect their attacks. The use of MQTT here is notable because it has previously only been used in a few malware campaigns, such as one involving a backdoor called MQsTTang and used by a China-linked threat actor, said researchers.

  • IBM: New Gootloader Variant Moves Laterally and Is Harder to Detect – Security Boulevard
    on 2023-11-09 at 00:39

    Now, “after an infection, large amounts of GootBot implants are disseminated throughout corporate environments with each containing a different hardcoded C2 server, making it difficult to block,” Mühr and Villadsen wrote, adding that the time the report was written, “GootBot implants maintain zero AV [antivirus] detections on VirusTotal, enabling it to spread stealthily.” “Previously, Gootloader was only observed as an initial access malware, after which attackers would load tools like CobaltStrike or use RDP to spread within the network,” X-Force researchers Golo Mühr and Ole Villadsen wrote in a report this week.
