All-new Windows 10 malware is excellent at evading detection

Security researchers at Kaspersky have discovered a new malware strain developed by the hacker-for-hire group DeathStalker that has been designed to avoid detection on Windows PCs.

While the threat actor has been active since at least 2012, DeathStalker first drew Kaspersky’s attention back in 2018 because of its distinctive attack characteristics which didn’t resemble those employed by cybercriminals or state-sponsored hackers.
