In a past article, we introduced TSCookie, malware which seems to be used by BlackTech. It has been revealed that this actor also uses another type of malware “PLEAD”. (“PLEAD” is referred to both as a name of malware including TSCookie and its attack campaign . In this article, we refer to “PLEAD” as a type malware apart from TSCookie.) PLEAD has two kinds – RAT (Remote Access Tool) and downloader. The RAT operates based on commands that are provided from C&C servers. (Please refer to a blog post from LAC for more information .) On the other hand, PLEAD downloader downloads modules and runs it on memory in the same way as TSCookie does.
