New RAT Dubbed Borat Emerging on the Cyberthreat Landscape

Borat, a new remote access trojan (RAT) with easy-to-use capabilities has emerged on the darknet markets. The malware focuses on DDoS (Distributed-Denial-of-Service) cyberattacks, ransomware distribution, and UAC bypass.

How Does Borat Work?

Borat is a RAT that allows remote hackers to be in full control over their targets’ mouse and keyboard, and access files, and network points while concealing their presence.

The threat actors who leverage it can customize their compilation options for compact payloads building purposes. These payloads fit the requirements necessary to conduct cyberattacks that are highly tailored.

The ones who discovered Borat were the experts from Cyble, who managed to sample the malware for a technical investigation that demonstrated its operation and published a report on this topic.

A Remote Access Trojan or RAT is a tool used by Threat Actors (TAs) to gain full access and remote control on a user’s system, including mouse and keyboard control, files access, and network resources access. During our regular OSINT research, Cyble Research Labs came across a new Remote Access Trojan (RAT) named Borat. Unlike other RATs, the Borat provides Ransomware, DDOS services, etc., to Threat Actors along with usual RAT features, further expanding the malware capabilities. The developer named
