☣ "ServHelper and FlawedGrace - New malware introduced by TA505" - DENNIS SCHWARZ AND PROOFPOINT STAFF "For much of 2018, we observed threat actors increasingly distributing downloaders, backdoors, information stealers, remote access Trojans (RATs), and more as they abandoned ransomware as their primary payload. In November 2018, TA505, a prolific actor that has been at the forefront of this trend, began distributing a new backdoor we named “ServHelper”. ServHelper has two variants: one focused on remote desktop functions and a second that primarily functions as a downloader. Additionally we have observed the downloader variant download a malware we call “FlawedGrace.” FlawedGrace is a full-featured RAT that we first observed in November 2017. TA505 appears to be actively targeting banks, retail businesses, and restaurants as they distribute these malware families. This targeting falls in line with other activity we reported earlier in 2018.[1] [2]"
