Description(Cybereason) During our investigation, we found several unidentified malware samples related to TrickBot infections. The malware is dubbed Anchor by its authors and has been active since August 2018. Unlike Anchor_DNS, the Anchor malware does not implement communication over DNS. However, it does share many behavioral, code, and string similarities with Anchor_DNS and some similarities to TrickBot.
