More Zoom trouble, better get your installer game on

I’m trying to catch up on stuff that I’ve read that is a little back dated, so bare with me a little bit.

You need to get your installing game on, because an article talking about fake installers of Zoom which include some very interesting things that you may not want.

Cybercriminals are taking advantage of “the new normal” — involving employees’ remote working conditions and the popularity of user-friendly online tools
— by abusing and spoofing popular legitimate applications to infect systems with malicious routines. We found two malware files that pose as Zoom installers
but when decoded, contains the malware code. These malicious fake installers do not come from Zoom’s official installation distribution channels. One of
the samples installs a backdoor that allows malicious actors to run malicious routines remotely, while the other sample involves the installation of the
Devil Shadow botnet in devices.

This is only the beginning, and Trend Micro has plenty more about this tactic. Its never too late to be aware of this, so I still feel that it is worth passing it long.

Backdoor, Devil Shadow Botnet Hidden in Fake Zoom Installers is the article, and stay safe!
