Eternity Malware Detection: Novel Modular MaaS

Eternity MaaS

While cybersecurity professionals are working hard to augment SOC operations with more scalable and innovative solutions, threat actors are also putting an effort not to be left to bring up the rear in this everlasting security race. Security researchers detect the surge in the numbers of malware-as-a-service (MaaS) offers, with its operators coming with new sophisticated distribution and propagation approaches. One of the most recent examples is a malware toolkit dubbed “Eternity Project” that can be obtained not only on dark markets but also by connecting with its distributors via their Telegram channel.

Threat actors are employing new сustomer-oriented services, such as a Telegram Bot that enables the buyers of the Eternity malware to tune their purchases to better correspond with their malicious intentions. The malware toolkit includes an Eternity stealer, worm, miner, clipper, ransomware, and a distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) bot. All purchase offers can be bought individually.

The novel malware service tagged Eternity is gaining in popularity in a threat market. Cyble Research Labs’ experts reported on a recently surfaced Eternity Project’s malware they discovered on a TOR website, which is now sold via Telegram messaging service. The Telegram channel also offers product updates, an option to build the binary, and user support to Eternity malware operators-to-be.
