Sold in underground forums, the NanoCore remote access Trojan (RAT) was first discovered in 2013. This malware has a variety of functions including keylogging, which is where a password stealer remotely passes along the data to the malware operator.
The current NanoCore RAT spreads through malspam campaigns, which utilize social engineering techniques to send emails with fake bank payment receipts and requests for quotations. The emails also contain malicious attachments with IMG or ISO file extensions. Another version of NanoCore is distributed in phishing campaigns leveraging specially crafted ZIP files designed to bypass secure email gateways.
