A new advanced persistent threat (APT) has been discovered by security researchers. Dubbed Moker, the malware is a remote access Trojan that can evade security measures on Windows PC.
The malware was discovered by Israeli security firm enSilo, who gave the Trojan its name. Researchers discovered it hiding on a customer’s network but were not entirely sure how it got there.
