Darktrack has powerful functionality usually found only in commercial Trojans remote access.


On underground hacker forums there is a new trend of spreading malicious tools within the free model. SecurityLab previously wrote about RAT called Revenge, offered in a free access. Recently it became known about another Troyan remote access, which the author distributes absolutely for free.

Usually free RAT often incomplete and contain backdoors and can be easily detected by antivirus solutions. Unlike other malware of this kind, RAT Darktrack has a quite powerful functionality usually found only in commercial Trojans remote access.

In late August, a researcher under the pseudonym MalwareHunterTeam found Darktrack version 4.0 for Windows. Literally the same day the developer of malware known as Luckyduck, posted a message on one of underground sites with the announcement of a new version Darktrack - Alien+ 4.1.

According to information on the official website Darktrack, the new version includes a number of different functions, previously seen in the commercial RAT such as Orcus or JBifrost (Adwind). In particular, Darktrack Alien+ 4.1 can remotely connect to your computer and to access the file system, interact with local processes, and services, work as a Keylogger to monitor the user with the help of web-cameras, capture video and audio, to extract passwords to execute commands on the infected system, to carry out DDoS attacks, etc.

According to Whois, the site is registered in the name of a resident of Turkey Ekrem Karatas (Ekrem Karatas), but it is possible that upon registration could be used fake data.
Luckyduck has also published a promotional video demonstrating the work Darktrack Alien+
