Lazarus The Tale of the three RATS

The Lazarus APT has been targeting the renewable energy sector across Japan, United States and Canada. On these campaigns it has used some old tools, but more importantly it has used a new RAT built from scratch. This new RAT is based on QtFramework, a graphical interface which has no record of being used to build malware before. In this presentation Vitor will take a deep dive into this new RAT and will show the techniques, tools and procedures used by Lazarus APT to compromise the organizations, on this highly targeted campaign.
