Recently, the RokRAT malware has been distributed through malicious LNK files. LNK files are shortcut files used to quickly launch programs on Windows systems. RokRAT is a remote access trojan (RAT) that is used to gain access to a user’s system and steal data.
The malicious LNK files have been distributed through spam emails and malicious websites. Once opened, the LNK file downloads and installs the RokRAT malware onto the user’s system. Once installed, the malware will connect to a remote server and allow the attacker to gain full control of the user’s system. They can then use the access to steal sensitive data, install additional malware, or perform other malicious activities.
It is important to be aware of the potential threats posed by malicious LNK files and to take steps to protect yourself. Make sure you only download files from trusted sources and verify any suspicious files before opening them. Additionally, you should use a robust antivirus program to help detect and block any malicious files or activities.
By taking these steps, you can help ensure that your system and data remain secure and protected.
