Malware – SOGOMOT and MIRYAGO use encrypted JPEG files in targeted attacks

Trend shares awareness of new targeted attacks circulating in Asia-Pacific region

QUOTE: We recently came across some malware of the SOGOMOT and MIRYAGO families that update themselves in an unusual way: they download JPEG files that contain encrypted configuration files/binaries. Not only that, we believe that this activity has been ongoing since at least the middle of 2010. A notable detail of the malware we came across is that these malware  hide their configuration files. These JPEGs are located on sites hosted in the Asia-Pacific region, and we believe that these malware families are used in targeted attacks in the region as well.
