I listen to daily tech headlines every morning on my device. This is the latest scam, the scary part is that it says it’s undetected by antivirus software.
SysJoker is a remote access Trojan or RAT (Remote Access Tool) which started hitting systems in the 2nd half of 2021. SysJoker is unusual for several reasons.
It’s code is written from scratch, with versions for Windows Linux and Mac, and Linux and Mac versions will be fully undetected on the antivirus malware search engine. It also uses 4 separate commanding control troll servers, indicating an advanced threat with significant resources.
Now, it may seem that I’m getting off track, since I normally talk about identity theft. However, I want you to know what’s going on out there, to underline the importance of doing your virus scans, cleaning out your files, defragmenting, security sweeps. Keep your information under lock and key – don’t open emails from people you don’t know, and please, please be careful on social media, Facebook, Clubhouse…
As always, wash those hands, wear your mask. De-clutter your computer to make it easier to keep track of everything.
