Sophisticated malware stalks vulnerable routers – both individual users and companies are victims

According to information security company Lumen Black Lotus Labs, a sophisticated trojan malware called ZuoRAT uses vulnerabilities found in routers from different manufacturers.

Vulnerable routers include at least consumer models manufactured by Asus, Netgear, DrayTek and Cisco. According to Lumen Black Lotus Labs The victims of ZuoRAT have been the home networks of individual users as well as the networks of small companies using consumer-style routers.

The sophisticated malware attacks its victims through a multi-step process, the end result of which is installing malware called Beacon, GoBeacon, and Cobalt Strike on users’ devices. These can be used, for example, to download files from users’ devices, or to download more malware onto them. Additional malware installed by ZuoRAT can be difficult to get rid of.
