NEW: ShadowPad Backdoor

ShadowPad Backdoor distributed in hundreds of organisations’ critical networks

Kaspersky Lab have identified that software produced and distributed by NetSarang has been compromised to include an encrypted backdoor, named ShadowPad. The compromised software was identified when a financial organisation noticed suspicious DNS requests from a software package produced by NetSarang. The backdoor is remotely activated and allows attackers to upload files to the compromised network, create files and store information in a victim’s registry. Currently one company in Hong Kong is known to have been affected, and the attack is thought to have been facilitated via a supply chain compromise.
