A new loader-type malware adopted a technique similar to Process Doppelgänging and spread like wildfire in the last year and half. This loader is a significant threat, besides GandCrab, that closed up shop earlier this year, it delivers over a dozen other payloads like FormBook, LokiBot, SmokeLoader, AZORult, NetWire, njRat and Pony stealer.

Towards the end of 2018, enSilo blocked a suspicious attack attempt originating from a generic PowerShell script. While investigating the attack our team discovered an interesting loader malware that delivers different payloads.
