Threats of the Week – January 27, 2020
January 27, 2020

sLoad malware

sLoad’s main purpose is to infect Windows PCs, gather information about the system they infected, send this info to a command and control (C&C) server, and then wait for instructions to download and install a second malware payload.

The malware exists to serve as a delivery system for more potent malware strains and to help the sLoad gang make money by providing pay-per-install space for other cybercriminal operations (e.g.; such as the Ramnit banking trojan gang).
