QakBot is financial malware known to target businesses to drain their online banking accounts. The malware features worm capabilities to self-replicate through shared drives and removable media. It uses powerful information-stealing features to spy on users’ banking activity and eventually defraud them of large sums of money. QakBot is modular, multithread malware whose various components implement online banking credential theft, a backdoor feature, SOCKS proxy, extensive anti-research capabilities and the ability to subvert antivirus (AV) tools. Aside from its evasion techniques, given admin privileges, QakBot’s current variant can disable security software running on the endpoint.
