CoinMiners are on the rise, trending so high that in the last couple of month they almost completely replaced ransomware in both media and the research community. Unlike ransomware which profit from rapid encryption of user’s data taken hostage, CoinMiners profit comes from high jacking computer resources. As long as the CoinMiner stays undetected and stealth, the higher its author profit. \nIn this talk we will focus on the unexplored territory of CoinMiner evasive maneuver and functionality to avoid getting found by its victims and provide tactics and tools to combat them.
There are different well-known services that allow us to analyze a file in search of viruses, also URLs (addresses of websites) or even hashes. Now, we can even scan files for malware from the popular Telegram messaging application and the MalScanBot bot.
MalScanBot, created by Omri Moyal, and integrates with Intezer Analyze to provide a convenient chat-based malware analysis. We encourage you to write your own plugins with your preferred tools, and to publish them for the benefit of the security community.
