Parallax RAT

A remote access Trojan named Parallax is being widely distributed through malicious spam campaigns that when installed allow attackers to gain full control over an infected system.

Being offered for as low as $65 a month, attackers have started to heavily use this malware to gain access to a victim’s computer to steal their saved login credentials and files or to execute commands on the computer.

ObliqueRAT

Researchers have uncovered a new Remote Access Trojan (RAT) that appears to be the handiwork of a threat group specializing in attacks against government and diplomatic targets.

The latest campaign started in January 2020 and is ongoing. The cybercriminals behind the scheme use phishing emails as the primary attack vector, with malicious Microsoft Office documents attached to the fraudulent emails designed to deploy the RAT.
