The Remcos payload is a type of malware that is designed to exploit and damage computer systems. It can infiltrate your system through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often without the user's knowledge. Once inside, it has the potential to steal personal information, disrupt operations, or hold data hostage for ransom. The malware is typically downloaded by GuLoader, another malicious software, from various URLs. These URLs have been identified and their SHA256 descriptions documented for reference. The delivery of the Remcos payload was tracked via several URLs and IP addresses, which were identified in the sample as Internet of Things (IoT) compromises (IOCs). Among these, hxxp://38[.242.193.23/1.exe and hxxp://194[.180.48.211/frog/dnsJRjnsci193.sea were found to be associated with GuLoader and Remcos payload respectively. Additional IOCs such as zab4ever.no-ip.org pointed towards the 185.217.1.137 IP address, further suggesting the spread of the malware. Successful delivery of a Remcos payload could provide an attacker with the opportunity to take control of the target device, steal information, and/or move laterally through the target network. This conclusion is part of a comprehensive report that also includes mitigations to reduce the impact of this threat. The report details a variety of MD5 ITW URLs associated with different stages of the malware delivery process, including encrypted and decrypted payloads. Understanding these steps and associated indicators can help in developing robust defenses against such threats.
