Rugmi Malware Loader Unleashes Daily Surge, Detecting Hundreds

Diving into the complex and ever-shifting world of cybersecurity, a menacing new player has taken the stage, deploying an advanced malware loader to unleash a barrage of information stealers. Identified by ESET as Win/TrojanDownloader.Rugmi, this malicious loader operates through three distinct components, facilitating the download and execution of encrypted payloads. Recent telemetry data indicates a troubling surge in Rugmi loader detections, highlighting its adaptive tactics to evade detection. Notably, this threat serves as a conduit for information stealers like Lumma Stealer, Vidar, and RecordBreaker, sold in the cyber black market under a malware-as-a-service (MaaS) model. The interconnectedness of cyber threats is evident as evidence suggests repurposing of codebases from other notorious stealers.


The distribution channels for Rugmi are diverse, employing methods from malvertising to Discord’s content delivery network (CDN). As ESET underscores, the rise of ready-made malware solutions contributes to the proliferation of malicious campaigns, with Lumma Stealer’s multifunctionality enhancing its attractiveness in the cyber underworld. These revelations coincide with McAfee Labs’ disclosure of a new NetSupport RAT variant, showcasing the dynamic tactics employed by cybercriminals with a primary focus on the U.S. and Canada. In this ever-evolving landscape, awareness and vigilance are paramount as we unravel the intricacies of these emerging threats and explore the cybersecurity measures essential to ward off their impact.
