Iron Tiger, an APT organization, has updated its SysUpdate RAT by incorporating additional functionality and support for malware infection to target the Linux OS. Experts suspect APT27 used the chat app Youdu to send malicious links to the employees, luring them into downloading the initial infection payloads. Organizations are suggested to tighten up the vigilance of all entry points, including emails and IM with ant-malware and anti-phishing solutions.
