A tricky downloader has hit the scene in a series of campaigns targeting restaurants, hotels and telecommunications companies.
A new downloader was disclosed today, sporting significant anti-analysis features and increasingly sophisticated distribution techniques.
Researchers at Proofpoint have been tracking the downloader as a first-stage payload in campaigns since May 2018. Dubbed AdvisorsBot (due to early command-and-control domains, all containing the word “advisors”), it has been targeting hotels, restaurants and telecom-sector victims.
