Cross Platform Trojan : Windows, Mac, Linux – Nobody is safe !

Posted In News - By K.C. On Sunday, July 15th, 2012 With 3 Comments
So finally a universal malware has showed up which acts on Windows, Mac and also linux !  The attack was first seen on a Columbian transport website which had been hacked by a third party. This malware is known as GetShell.A and requires users to approve a Java applet installation. As Java is platform independent the malware also is able to perform on various platforms!
It detects if you’re running Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux, and then downloads the corresponding malware for your platform. The malicious files developed for each type of OS connect to the same Command & Control server  at IP address

    Great article!! The exact dynamic payload shown, was originally written by David Kennedy who designed SET. We discus the full details in this hacking and forensics group: , however the attack is easy to perform and already distributed within the Metasploit Framework’s Social Engineer Toolkit, as a signed java applet payload.

  2. Great post. I used to be checking continuously this blog and I’m impressed! Extremely useful info particularly the closing section :) I take care of such info much. I used to be looking for this particular info for a very long time. Thanks and good luck.
