SVCReady is a relatively new malware family first observed in malicious spam campaigns at the end of April 2022. This harmful software, designed to exploit and damage computers or devices, was initially unknown but has since been identified through IDS rules published by Proofpoint. The malware infects systems through suspicious downloads, emails, or websites, often unbeknownst to the user. Once inside, it can steal personal information, disrupt operations, or even hold data hostage for ransom. SVCReady is under active development and beacons to its Command and Control (C2) server every five minutes, with capabilities such as taking screenshots and sending them to the C2 server. Throughout 2022, the use of SVCReady expanded to include other malware types like IcedID, Qakbot, Gozi, Quantum ransomware, and Matanbuchus. It was also used to crypt SVCReady, acting as a loader in Quantum ransomware attacks, and in the CargoBay loader, linked to Zeon and Royal ransomware attacks. In one notable campaign on April 26, RedLine Stealer was delivered as a follow-up payload after the initial infection with SVCReady. There is evidence of shared tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) between SVCReady and other malware campaigns, suggesting potential collaborations among criminal gangs. Similarities have been found between the templates and document builders used by the actors behind the TA551 and SVCReady campaigns. Moreover, there are resemblances in the lure images and file names of the documents used to deliver both SVCReady and those used in TA551 campaigns. This cross-pollination of strategies indicates that these factions are likely forging new relationships, leading to the testing and use of new malware such as SVCReady, CargoBay, and Matanbuchus.
