The malware of many tricks and no treats
In 2016, the threat group Wizard Spider developed TrickBot – a highly modular banking trojan believed to be the successor of Dyreza. The malware targets a wide range of industries, including academic, energy, financial services, healthcare, manufacturing, media, retail, telecommunications, and technology.
The clever modularity of TrickBot’s design allowed multiple plugins to be deployed over the years, creating mutants with additional abilities such as worming capabilities, evasion techniques, information harvesting, and a lot more. Lots of tricks indeed.
Despite its success and popularity, the Wizard Spider group has decided to drop the project and focus on the development of the more profitable Conti Ransomware.
