Cybersecurity researchers have offered a closer look at the RokRAT remote access trojan that’s employed by the North Korean state-sponsored actor known as ScarCruft.

“RokRAT is a sophisticated remote access trojan (RAT) that has been observed as a critical component within the attack chain, enabling the threat actors to gain unauthorized access, exfiltrate sensitive information, and potentially maintain persistent control over compromised systems,” ThreatMon said.

ScarCruft, active since at least 2012, is a cyber espionage group that operates on behalf of the North Korean government, exclusively focusing on targets in its southern counterpart.
