New Malware Warning Issued by CISA, DOD, and FBI

Established Malware Makes Resurgence

Taidoor, a malware family previously associated with Chinese state-sponsored hackers, has gotten a face lift. The malware itself has been used since 2008, but this week the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (DHS CISA), the Department of Defense’s Cyber Command (CyberCom), and the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) have issued a new warning.

The strain has been spotted in the wild in both 2012 and 2013. This most recent version, however, is being seen in new attacks. The joint Malware Analysis Report (MAR) suggests actions for mitigation and response.

A joint response by the three agencies is a new collaboration done in an effort to inform entities of pending threats. As always, keeping your security patches up-to-date and using education and default-deny antivirus are solid pieces in any security plan.

  1. I am having constant trouble with a spammer in my e-mail. I cannot get any help seems like from Mediacom to trace this guy or block him. The spammer has put some kind of lock on being able to forward the e-mail anymore and all I can do is delete it. Here it is, I was able to copy and paste it today. I know it’s out of your territory but I just don’t know where to go for help anymore, this guy sends this everyday trying to trick me with different tactics.
