A new malware strain is targeting Windows users

1 mins

A new malware strain, SystemBC, is targeting Windows computers with a multifaceted attack that can wreak havoc on users. 

In addition to infecting computers with the primary strain of malware, SystemBC contains an on-demand proxy component that allows other malware strains to integrate with infected computers. Bad actors can use this arrangement to install trojans, ransomware, and other malware on users’ computers. 

This iterative approach to malware illustrates the constantly-changing cyber security landscape that threatens every organisation. With the cost of a data breach growing each year, companies have every incentive to protect their IT infrastructure. Although the challenges are immense, partnering with qualified professionals can ensure that your organisation is always ready to combat the latest threats.
