Log4j used to install banking malware

Dec 22- Experts remain concerned regarding the malicious use of Log4j vulnerabilities. Experts predict a wide variety of malicious use-cases and have begun to see a handful of them manifest in the wild.

Threat actors are currently exploiting Log4j to release Dridex malware, which is a banking trojan originally developed to steal online banking credentials from unsuspecting persons. Hackers have since evolved the malware – meaning that it can now conduct an array of malicious activities, from installing additional payloads to secretly taking screenshots.

Dridex malware infections are believed to derive from the Evil Corp hacking group, which also deploys ransomware threats.
