The Aggah malware is a variant of the Revenge RAT (Remote Access Trojan) that has been used in massive attacks in the Middle East. Computer security researchers discovered that a previously unknown group made changes to the original RevengeRAT source-code and used the alias 'haggah' in attacks. The threat actors use spam emails to distribute their RAT and may use emails that look like internal company messages. The attackers appear to use filenames similar to commonly used names for work documents and lure users into downloading a macro-enabled Microsoft Word document.
The Aggah RAT is a generic remote access tool that enables threat actors to retrieve files from your PC; delete files on your disks; run/terminate programs; pull your Web browser bookmarks and saved passwords; take screenshots of your desktop; access your Webcam and microphone. You should avoid questionable emails and run security scans every week if you wish to diminish the risks of being infected with the Aggah RAT.
