INFOGRAPHIC: Illusive Networks Discovers New Nation-State Cyberattack Tools Linked to COVID-19 Phishing Scam

Illusive Networks recently detected and thwarted a nation-state attack linked to a COVID-19 related phishing scam. That led to the discovery of new tools used by cyber criminals, and researchers are investigating the potential involvement of two or more groups.

Attack characteristics appear almost identical to the BazarBackdoor attack developed by TrickBot, a well-known cybercrime group.
