AllaKore RAT Malware Targeting Mexican Firms with Financial Fraud Tricks

Gokulkrish Avatar

Mexican financial institutions are under the radar of a new spear-phishing campaign that delivers a modified version of an open-source remote access trojan called AllaKore RAT.

The BlackBerry Research and Intelligence Team attributed the activity to an unknown Latin American-based financially motivated threat actor. The campaign has been active since at least 2021.

“Lures use Mexican Social Security Institute (IMSS) naming schemas and links to legitimate, benign documents during the installation process,” the Canadian company said in an analysis published earlier this week.

“The AllaKore RAT payload is heavily modified to allow the threat actors to send stolen banking credentials and unique authentication information back to a command-and-control (C2) server for the purposes of financial fraud.”
