Mylobot Malware is a recent threat that attacks the user systems and injects its program directly into the memory.
Mylobot malware after its successful infiltration in the user’s system goes into hibernation for 14 days. It does this to avoid detection from security software and anti-virus definitions. After the 2 weeks of hibernation it connects with it C&C severs, maintained on the dark web.
The Command and control Servers used by Mylobot Malware are jointly used with other malware programs. These malware are used to raise havoc and damage to systems worldwide. It has been observed by researchers that with the advent in technology, programmers and developers of harmful code have started sharing their malware with other similar minded people. The malware programs are now being rented or sold for profits by the creators of these harmful computer codes.
Mylobot Malware after its initial hibernation becomes active and targets the Windows Update, Windows Defender and terminates the application. It disables the Windows Firewall to avoid detection of other payloads which are downloaded from its C&C servers. This botnet virus can be used to inject code in the system to create a suspended process that hides the actual process.
The harmful payloads can range from ransomware to banking trojans. The private data of the user becomes vulnerable and can be collected by the cyber miscreants to implement threats. Keyloggers can be used to collect every keystroke of the user, increasing the risk of password and username being stolen.
Mylobot Malware eliminates its competition from the system i.e. other malware which may be already present on the machine. It does so, to become the sole benefactor from its malicious intrusion.
The Mylobot Malware is known to conduct the following processes
The systems that it takes under its control are then used as a foot soldier for providing resources to perform DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service), Send spam to bait more people into downloading malware, steal sensitive data and perform other malicious activities.
It is still early and not much is known about the specifics of the Mylobot Malware. Users should be careful during their online activities and avoid suspicious links, ads and mails.
