Hikit is a type of malware that has been identified as a significant threat to computer systems and devices. Malware, or malicious software, is designed to exploit vulnerabilities in operating systems and applications to cause damage or steal sensitive information. Hikit is also known by other names such as Matrix RAT or Gaolmay. Recently, researchers discovered a new version of Hikit called 'Hias', which operates without writing files to the system's disk. This fileless version makes it difficult for traditional security tools to detect and defend against the malware. The Hias variant was found to be used by Group 72, along with two other threat actor groups. According to available data, both HydraQ and Hikit are unique to Group 72 and the two other threat actor groups. It is essential for organizations to implement robust cybersecurity measures to detect and prevent Hikit infections. These measures include regular software updates, anti-malware software, firewalls, and employee training on safe computing practices.
