Despite recent takedown efforts, persistent Trickbot operators are back with a new module call "Trickboot" that detects UEFI/BIOS firmware vulnerabilities. The Trickbot malware is no longer only at threat to Windows users - it is now targeting Linux systems as well.

The malware, often used by threat actors to drop ransomware, has garnered much attention over the past few months with multiple takedown attempts, including a technical disruption reportedly led by U.S. Cyber Command. Microsoft led a legal takedown in October, which offered a temporary pause in activity. Despite those efforts, Trickbot operators have updated the malware with new capabilities.
