Sophisticated WikiLoader Malware Targets Italian Organizations to Install Ursnif Banking Trojan

Proofpoint researchers discovered a new malware dubbed WikiLoader targeting Italian organizations. Threat actors TA544 (aka Bamboo Spider, Zeus Panda) and TA551 (aka Shathak) are delivering the malware, which includes evasion techniques and a custom code implementation, making detection and analysis difficult. Proofpoint researchers anticipate that WikiLoader, likely developed as a malware-for-hire, will expand its reach among cybercriminals and initial access brokers (IABs).
