BatCloak engine used for malware

Updated: Aug 22, 2023

For quite some time, cybercriminals have been employing the BatCloak engine to render their malicious software completely unnoticeable.

BatCloak serves as an obfuscation engine for malware, allowing the deployment of malware variants without triggering antivirus detection. Its effectiveness is evident, with 79.6% of discovered artifacts evading detection from any security solution. The engine empowers the creation of readily deployable files that bypass analysis by anti-malware systems, in addition to compressing and encrypting the primary payload.

This open source tool has received recent updates and adaptations to ensure compatibility with various families of well-known malware. Most notably, BatCloak is designed to be user-friendly, enabling adversaries of all skill levels to exploit it in their attacks. This accessibility factor makes BatCloak particularly dangerous, as it is easily obtainable by any cybercriminal.

The utilization of BatCloak in malware activities poses significant challenges for many detection software, making it highly difficult to identify. Therefore, it is crucial to be well-prepared to counter these stealthy malware attacks. It is imperative to possess the necessary tools and knowledge to effectively mitigate the risks associated with such undetectable malware threats.
