Researchers at Cybaze-Yoroi ZLab identified an espionage campaign targeting the automotive industry in Italy.
The malware used in this campaign was distributed via a phishing email. It attempts to entice a victim into believing it is legitimate, suggesting that it is from a senior partner at the Brazilian law firm “Veirano Advogados”. The actual malware is disguised as a Microsoft Power Point presentation that contains auto-open VBA macro code. Once initiated, it will download and execute the next stage of the dropper, then ultimately RevengeRAT. For full technical details, refer to Yoroi’s article.
