SystemBC: Another Malware On The Dark Web!




A fresh malware that’s being duly advertised on the dark web is SystemBC, which installs SOCKS5 proxies on the infected systems and sends through another malware.

The malware is being advertised since April and it made its first appearance in May, as the sources cite.

Per sources, it’s being distributed as a part of Fallout and RIG exploit kits which are web-oriented systems that make use of browser-based vulnerabilities to install malware.

To mislead the users into installing the malware the above-mentioned exploits also send through malicious web-pages.

Formerly an unauthenticated malware, SystemBC is majorly a demand-based proxy component for malware operators.

It can be deployed on compromised systems to shroud the malicious traffic and other malicious activities within a system.

According to researchers the malware’s main gig is to generate a SOCKS5 proxy server so that another malware could be pushed through to “bypass the local firewalls” and “internet content filters”.

Researchers vehemently advise users to patch their systems and not use older systems that use plugins that are  vulnerable to attacks as this malware is pretty difficult to detect.
