Osinfo is a malicious software that is designed to infiltrate computer systems and exploit them for harmful purposes. It can gain access to systems through various means, including suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often without the user's knowledge. Once inside, it has the potential to steal personal information, disrupt system operations, or even hold data hostage for ransom. The malware specifically targets the osinfo section of a system, a critical component used for gathering general-purpose system information. The operation of the Osinfo malware involves extracting the osinfo section from the infected system and subsequently sending it to a Command and Control (C2) server. This action allows the malware to communicate with an external server, providing the attacker with valuable system information that can be used for further exploitation or damage. The extracted osinfo can reveal significant details about the system, which could potentially include hardware configurations, installed software, and other critical system information. An illustration of the osinfo output can be found in Figure 14 on the HP Threat Research website. This figure provides a visual representation of the type of information the malware extracts and sends to the C2 server. As a general-purpose, system information gathering tool, osinfo plays a crucial role in maintaining system integrity. Therefore, its exploitation by the Osinfo malware poses a significant threat to the security and privacy of affected systems.
