A Syrian threat actor named EVLF has been outed as the creator of malware families CypherRAT and CraxsRAT.

“These RATs are designed to allow an attacker to remotely perform real-time actions and control the victim device’s camera, location, and microphone,” Cybersecurity firm Cyfirma said in a report published last week.

CypherRAT and CraxsRAT are said to be offered to other cybercriminals as part of a malware-as-a-service (MaaS) scheme. As many as 100 unique threat actors are estimated to have purchased the twin tools on a lifetime license over the past three years.
