VB2019 paper: Spoofing in the reeds with Rietspoof

Posted by    on   Jan 24, 2020

The Rietspoof malware was first discovered by Avast researchers in August 2018 and publicly disclosed in a blog post in February 2019.

The multi-stage malware utilises different file types throughout its infection chain including in one stage a CAB file. Full details of the malware, including later discoveries, were revealed in a VB2019 paper by Avast researchers Jan Sirmer, Luigino Camastra and Adolf Středa.
