Recently, a new threat, referred to as “SquirrelWaffle” is being spread more widely via spam campaigns, infecting systems with a new malware loader.
This is a malware family that’s been spread with increasing regularity and could become the next big player in the spam space.
SquirrelWaffle provides threat actors with an initial foothold onto systems and their network environments that can then be used to facilitate further compromise or additional malware infections depending on how adversaries choose to attempt to monetize their access.
In many cases, these infections are also being used to deliver and infect systems with other malware like Qakbot and the penetration-testing tool Cobalt Strike.
