New Windows Backdoor Linked to SambaCry Linux Malware
The cybercriminals who had recently delivered a cryptocurrency miner to Linux servers by exploiting the Samba vulnerability known as EternalRed and SambaCry are believed to have developed a backdoor designed for Windows systems. The new malware, detected by Kaspersky Lab products as Backdoor.Win32.CowerSnail, uses the same command and control (C&C) server as the Linux malware, namely cl.ezreal.space:20480. CowerSnail was created using Qt, a cross-platform development framework. Experts believe its authors may have leveraged Qt in order to directly transfer Unix code instead of having to learn using the Windows API. On the other hand, while it does make it easier to transfer code between platforms, Qt significantly increases the size of the resulting file.
