New Titanium Backdoor From Platinum APT Group Camouflages Itself by Mimicking Security Packages, Sound Drivers, DVD Video Tools

The advanced persistent threat (APT) group known as Platinum has a new custom backdoor called Titanium that is capable of all kinds of exploits and hides by mimicking file names of popular software including security packages, sound drivers and DVD video-creation tools., researchers at Kaspersky Lab report. Titanium can read any file from a file system and exfiltrate the data; drop or delete a file in the file system; drop a file and run it; run a command line and upload the execution results; and update configuration parameters (except the AES encryption key). Platinum focuses on the APAC regions and the new targets of Titanium are in South and Southeast Asia.
