In a new study, it was discovered that Facebook has been exploited to act as a distribution platform for a set of Remote Access Trojans (RATs) for years. The aim of the operation has been to spread RATs including Houdini, Remcos, and SpyNote. So far tens of thousands of victims from Libya, Europe, the US, and China are believed to have been compromised. The threat actor behind the campaign has used the political turmoil in Libya to their advantage. When someone interested in Libyan politics clicked on the URLs, they would instead be sent to malicious content.
