Spam Campaign Leads to Azorult Trojan Spyware
August 22, 2018
Similar to EMOTET’s arrival, Trojan spyware Azurolt has been spotted coming in the form of a spoofed bank notification. The spam campaign is making the rounds in Germany and UK.
The email prompts the user to download a doc file using the malicious link different from what is displayed:
The URL downloads from a fake db.com site:
Then redirects to the real db.com:
Once the user enables the macro (detected as W2KM_POWLOAD.NSFGAIBA), it downloads the Godzilla loader (detected as TROJ_ZIGDOLL.A) from the fake db.com site via PowerShell. It then downloads the Azurolt malware (detected as TSPY_AZORULT.A), designed to steal information.
