XLoader Botnet: Find Me If You Can

#Checkpoint research team uncovered new versions of #XLoader with updated protection mechanism and camouflaging capabilities.

#XLoader is based off #Formbook and receive updates much more frequently than its predecessor. The last version observed go back to early 2020 which suggests it is now discontinued in favor of #XLoader.

In their article they explain the changes, especially the process of camouflaging C&C servers as web hosting domains (fake Hostinger and Namecheap being the most common), in v.2.5. They also provide ways to identify C&C domains among others.

This new version brings the most changes, but a v.2.6 was also spotted, bringing minor improvement to the way it communicates.
