New Latrodectus malware replaces IcedID in network breaches

Posted by in categories: cybercrime/malcode, finance

A relatively new malware called Latrodectus is believed to be an evolution of the IcedID loader, seen in malicious email campaigns since November 2023.

The malware was spotted by researchers at Proofpoint and Team Cymru, who worked together to document its capabilities, which are still unstable and experimental.

IcedID is a malware family first identified in 2017 that was originally classified as a modular banking trojan designed to steal financial information from infected computers. Over time, it became more sophisticated, adding evasion and command execution capabilities.
