HijackLoader unleashed: Evolving threats and sneaky tactics.

Show Notes

Liviu Arsene from CrowdStrike joins to discuss their research "HijackLoader Expands Techniques to Improve Defense Evasion." The research has found that HijackLoader continues to become increasingly popular among adversaries for deploying additional payloads and tooling.

In their analysis of a recent HijackLoader sample, CrowdStrike researchers discovered new techniques designed to increase the defense evasion capabilities of the loader. Researchers state "this new approach has the potential to make defense evasion stealthier."
