Virobot Will Return

Cybersecurity firm Trend Micro has identified a new malware, Virobot. While it doesn’t appear to be connected to a previous strain of ransomware, it uses familiar techniques.

However, Virobot is ransomware, keylogger, and botnet all in one.

The ransomware infects the device and locks it down. While waiting for the ransom payment, it can then log key strokes, pull down additional ransomware to install, and use the device as a bot to spread itself.

As of the writing of this article, the Virobot C&C server was down. Thanks to previous examples, we can infer that this was likely only a test. Cyber actors will test out their capabilities in such a way to prepare for a larger attack later.

Will you be prepared for when that happens?
