The return of a malware menace.

Show Notes

This week we are joined by, Selena Larson from Proofpoint, who is discussing their research, "Bumblebee Buzzes Back in Black." Bumblebee is a sophisticated downloader used by multiple cybercriminal threat actors and was a favored payload from its first appearance in March 2022 through October 2023 before disappearing.
