Researchers uncover new Italian RAT uWarrior

2015/08/26

Threatpost - (International) Security researchers from Palo Alto Networks discovered a new fully-featured remote access trojan (RAT) called uWarrior embedded in a rigged Rich Text Format (.RTF) file. After the file infects the system, it downloads a payload and is copied to another directory, where it communicates with a command and control server through an encrypted protocol.
