+ - Remote Access Trojan Makes Its Traffic Look Legitimate ->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "RATs — Remote Access Trojans — are often used by cyber attackers to maintain a foothold in the infected computers and make them do things unbeknownst to their owners. But, in order to do that and not be spotted, RATs must employ a series of obfuscation techniques. Take for example the FAKEM RAT variants recently analyzed by Trend Micro researchers: in order to blend in, some try to make their network traffic look like Windows Messenger and Yahoo! Messenger traffic, and others as HTML."
