Abstract

The G Data SecurityLabs recently identified a malware sample that takes the next step in Command-and-Control (short: C&C) communication evolution, regarding C&C traffic obfuscation. The botnet owners placed their C&C server, which uses the common IRC protocol, as a hidden service inside of the Tor network.
