HP Threat Research dubbed the new, evasive loader “RATDispenser,” with the malware responsible for deploying at least eight different malware families in 2021. Around 155 samples of this new malware have been discovered, spread across three different variants, hinting that it’s under active development.
“RATDispenser is used to gain an initial foothold on a system before launching secondary malware that establishes control over the compromised device,” security researcher Patrick Schläpfer said. “All the payloads were RATs, designed to steal information and give attackers control over victim devices.”
