Description(Palo Alto) In the past, Hancitor was sent as a malicious attachment in a spam email which would then download and install the attackers’ final malware like a banking Trojan. When they would do this, the Hancitor attachment would download and install the final malware from a malicious or compromised site.

But as organizations have gotten more effective at blocking malicious attachments like Hancitor, we’ve seen the attackers behind Hancitor adapt to evade detection and prevention.

They’ve done this by moving the Hancitor malware from being a malicious attachment in spam to itself being a malicious download. The spam the attackers use no long has a malicious attachment but instead a malicious link that downloads the malicious Hancitor attachment.
