The ever-adapting cybercrime ecosystem is constantly producing new underground releases in the form of malware loaders, remote access trojans (RATs), malware cryptors, Web, IRC and P2P based command and control interfaces, all with the clear objective  to undermine current security solutions.

What’s particularly interesting about the Ann Malware Loader is the fact that it comes with an EULA agreement, emphasizing on the fact that the malware loader is to be used for testing purposes only. By doing this, the key coder behind this underground release is forwarding the responsibility for its uses to his customers.

Moreover, thanks to its modular nature, the malware author is offering custom made modules allowing potential cybercriminals to hire a malware coder for a specified amount of money.

Webroot’s security researchers will continue monitoring the development of this malware loader to ensure that Webroot SecureAnywhere customers are protected from it.
