Mac And Android Added To GravityRAT Malware’s Targets
Malware comes in all shapes and sizes. Some strains copy and encrypt files. Others serve annoying ads.
Still others work quietly in the background, mining this or that cryptocurrency using your computer's processing power to do it.
GravityRAT is a different sort of creature. It has been actively developed since at least 2015 by Pakistani hacker groups, and has been used primarily against military installations in India. As such, it's not the sort of malware your IT staff is likely to have a face to face encounter with unless you're doing contract work with the Indian military. It is interesting, however, and worth taking a closer look at.
