Saint Bot is a relatively new, yet increasingly prevalent, form of malware that serves as a downloader for other malicious software. It's identified by its small list of commands and its ability to stealthily infiltrate systems through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites. Once installed, Saint Bot can steal personal information, disrupt system operations, or download additional malware. Its sophistication is evident in the variety of techniques it employs, although these are not entirely novel. The malware has been identified as "saint_v3", indicating it's the third version of this particular bot. The attackers' primary objectives include installing the Saint Bot Downloader, which has previously been linked to infostealers and other downloaders, and pilfering private files and documents. The command and control (C2) panel associated with Saint Bot appears typical for this type of malware. Some strings within the malware can be deobfuscated using tools such as FLOSS, which can provide further insights into its operation and purpose. One notable instance of a Saint Bot attack involved a COVID-19-themed campaign targeting Georgia. This attack used a malicious LNK file accompanied by a deceptive document and a decoy PDF. Both droppers led to instances of Saint Bot. As the malware continues to gain momentum, vigilance and robust cybersecurity measures remain essential to protect against this threat.
