In order to get around sophisticated detection systems, many virus makers are now employing unorthodox programming languages. Lu0Bot, a piece of Node.js malware, is proof of this tendency. Lu0Bot poses a severe threat to both individuals and companies because it uses multi-layer obfuscation and a platform-agnostic runtime environment that is typical of modern online apps.
Despite the malware’s minimal activity right now, the attackers are probably waiting for the ideal opportunity to attack. To be ready for any scenario, a team of analysts performed a thorough technical study of one of the most recent samples of Lu0Bot and shared their findings in a published paper.
