A botnet is a number of Internet-connected devices, each of which is running one or more bots. Botnets can be used to perform distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack), steal data, send spam, and allows the attacker to access the device and its connection. The owner can control the botnet using command and control (C&C) software. The word "botnet" is a combination of the words "robot" and "network". The term is usually used with a negative or malicious connotation.
Gamarue is modular, which means that its functionality can be extended by plug-ins that are either included in the crime kit or available for separate purchase. The Gamarue plug-ins include:■ Keylogger ($150)
Used for logging keystrokes and mouse activity in order to steal user names and passwords, financial information, and so on.■ Rootkit (included in crime kit)
Injects rootkit codes into all processes running on a victim’s computer to give Gamarue persistence.■ Socks4/5 (included in crime kit)
Turns victim’s computer into a proxy server for serving malware or malicious instructions to other computers on the internet.■ Formgrabber ($250)
Captures any data submitted through web browsers (such as Chrome, Firefox, and Internet Explorer)■ Teamviewer ($250)
Enables attacker to remotely control the victim’s computer, spy on the desktop, and perform file transfers, among other functions.■ Spreader
Adds capability to spread Gamarue malware itself via removable drives (for example, portable hard drives or flash drives connected via a USB port); it also uses Domain Generation Algorithms (DGA) for the servers onto which it downloads updates.
As the cost of circumventing security measures increases, hackers are taking advantage of “low-hanging fruit”, such as infrastructure and apps used by organizations and consumers, with the intention of infecting computers and gaining access to sensitive data such as credentials. In this section, we share three of the low hanging fruit routes employed by cyber attackers: social engineering, poorly secured cloud apps, and legitimate software platform features.
When adopting cloud apps, you should make sure that only apps with web session protection and encryption are allowed in your environment. Organizations should have a solution in place to have visibility into and control over all cloud apps usage. For example, some employees could be using unsanctioned SaaS apps for storing corporate or other forms of sensitive data. Using an enterprise cloud access security broker (CASB) security solution is the only way an organization can ensure that no such apps are used by employees.
