Hackers have started to give out much more subtle hints instead of doing major ransomware. Trojan malware breaches towards company targets have increased in the last year, as the hackers have changed their strategies from majorly obvious and largescale attacks to much more long term and subtle attacks.
Malwarebytes has classified backdoors and trojans separately describing the trojan as a program that claims to perform a single function but actually performs another and a backdoor is given a definition of a kind of trojan that lets a hack actor get entry to a system by bypassing its security and getting access to undetected systems.
Chris Boyd who is a lead malware intelligence analyst at Malwarebytes, “When you say spyware, people think of how it’s been around for a decade or more and it’s old and boring but it’s really effective and it’s really come back into fashion with the rise in attacks on businesses and a thirst for data exfiltration. Despite its potentially mundane trappings, spyware is quite a big deal again.”
