We take another look at the Neutrino bot, known for its diverse feature set ranging from snooping on victims to performing DDos attacks. This latest version includes a hardened protective layer aimed at defeating sandboxes and hiding the bot from discovery.

While initially pushing the Neutrino exploit kit, it switched to RIG EK in September. We estimate that at least one million visitors to adult websites were exposed to this particular campaign.
