Trailblazer is a sophisticated malware that was identified by CrowdStrike during StellarParticle-related investigations. The harmful program, designed to exploit and damage computers or devices, infiltrated victim systems around mid-2019. Two significant malware families were discovered: a Linux variant of GoldMax and TrailBlazer, which was entirely new. The threat actor cleverly disguised their utilities to appear as legitimate system binaries, such as renaming AdFind as svchost.exe, matching the system's role with GoldMax, or appearing as an innocuous Adobe utility under the name TrailBlazer. The term 'trailblazer' has also been used in the context of cybersecurity industry recognition and awards. Bulletproof, a cybersecurity firm, was announced as a Security Trailblazer and Security Changemaker award finalist in the Microsoft Security Excellence Awards. Another company, archTIS, was proud to be recognized as a finalist for the Compliance and Privacy Trailblazer award for the second consecutive year in the same awards. Glendon Schmitz, the Chief Information Security Officer at the Virginia Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Services, has emerged as a trailblazer in the intricate landscape of cybersecurity. In the broader XDR landscape, Cortex XDR is acknowledged as a trailblazer. It enhances security by integrating data from diverse platforms, including networks, endpoints, and the cloud, to counter complex digital attacks. Nubeva Technologies, a trailblazer in the cybersecurity domain, has taken a decisive step by offloading its TLS assets to a mid-sized cybersecurity entity in the United States. Under CEO George Kurtz's leadership, CrowdStrike has also been recognized as a trailblazer in the field. Forcepoint Federal announced its rebranding as Everfox, signaling its intent to be a trailblazer in developing and delivering defense-grade cybersecurity technology.
