In this episode of the Security Swarm Podcast, host Andy and recurring guest Eric Siron discuss the Monthly Threat Review for June 2024.  They explore a new threat campaign distributing the Darkgate Malware using a technique called pastejacking. Additionally, they touch upon the 911 S5 Proxy Botnet takedown and how threat actors are exploiting Stack Overflow to distribute malware.

Key takeaways:

  • Awareness of common tactics like pacejacking can help prevent falling victim to malware campaigns.
  • Read the details of the Darkgate attack methods we show in the report and adjust your security posture as needed. If you’re in need of powerful, next-gen email security software, we’ve got you covered.
  • If your organization is leveraging software from any online, public repository, take the time to review that repository and do a risk assessment. Threat-actors are increasingly using public software repos for malicious purposes.
