Experts discovered “inconspicuous” PowerShell-Backdor
Safebreach specialists found the new PowerShell Backdor, which has already been used for attacks for at least 69 targets.
There are two additional scripts inside the backdor – Script.PS1 and TEMP.PS1. The first sends the victim identifier to its operators and receives further commands in encrypted form. The second decodes the received commands, performs them, and then encrypts and uploads the result to the control server.
At the time of the detection of scripts, Safebreach analysts, none of the antiviruses defined them as malicious.
The decoding of the operators’ commanders showed that two -thirds of them were intended for theft of data, and the rest were used to draw up lists of files, accounts and RDP customers, as well as their deletion.
According to experts, at least 69 computers have already become victims of Malvari.
Safebreach suggests that PowerShell-Backdor was created earlier unknown attackers. Data lack of data does not yet allow you to establish their personality.
