Syrian Hackers Distribute RATs to Cybercriminals

Threat actors operating under the name Anonymous Arabic have released a remote access trojan (RAT) called Silver RAT that’s equipped to bypass security software and stealthily launch hidden applications.

The actors, assessed to be of Syrian origin and linked to the development of another RAT known as S500 RAT, also run a Telegram channel offering various services such as the distribution of cracked RATs, leaked databases, carding activities, and the sale of Facebook and X (formerly Twitter) bots.

The C#-based malware boasts of a wide range of features to connect to a command-and-control (C2) server, log keystrokes, destroy system restore points, and even encrypt data using ransomware. There are also indications that an Android version is in the works.
