Anti-sandbox capabilities found in Dyre malware
A new version of Dyre malware, which recently reemerged to plague financial institutions in the form of the Dyre Wolf campaign, is now employing anti-sandbox techniques to avoid security professionals and pose a more insidious threat to financial enterprises.
New research from cloud-based security firm Seculert revealed that Dyre is capable of bypassing sandboxes by checking the system for processor cores. If only one core is found, Dyre terminates instantly.
