The history of an infection – increased hacker attacks
Analiza pliku infekcji podszywającego się pod aplikację Rufus
One of our clients reported an infection to us after downloading a Rufus file. The file did not have a certificate and its MD5 checksum is 7BF6F285D07B46D4542CDC7D0186FF71 The client’s suspicion aroused the file size of over 300 MB but only after its launch.
The file had a Rufus application icon. The customer reported that he had downloaded it from a website confusingly similar to the software vendor’s website, but when it was launched, the corresponding Rufus windows did not appear. The infection is detected by some antivirus or the result of network analysis. Removing the infection was possible thanks to the antivirus program, it detected the infection, but it is not certain whether all the modules of the 300 MB infection were removed. Maybe the infection has to do with mass Anonymous attacks,
