The universal modular cyber-espionage toolkit

The Operation Potao Express whitepaper by Robert Lipovsky and Anton Cherepanov presents ESET’s latest findings based on research into the Win32/Potao malware family. Even though the malware was detected long ago by ESET and a few other anti-virus companies, it hasn’t received any public attention since 2011, when the first known samples were detected.
