“Malicious actors are once again turning to Golang as a malware language since it is not commonly tracked by antivirus software. As it targets vulnerable servers, it is still a top threat vector that cybercriminals look to exploit,” said Fleming Shi, CTO at Barracuda Networks.

Once the Golang malware infects a machine, it downloads the files based on the platform it is attacking. For Windows machines, the malware also adds a backdoor user.
