Permanent link Tool: METALJACK

NamesMETALJACK
CategoryMalware
TypeLoader, Reconnaissance, Backdoor
Description(FireEye) The malware also loads shellcode in an additional resource, which contains the METALJACK payload. The shellcode performs a system survey to collect the victim's computer name and username and then appends those values to a URL string using libjs.inquirerjs[.]com. It then attempts to call out to the URL. If the callout is successful, the malware loads the METALJACK payload into memory.
