Researchers are investigating a widespread campaign wherein attackers are trojanizing multiple hacking tools with njRAT. The ultimate goal of the campaign is to gain access to victims’ machines that can be used later for anything from conducting DDoS attacks to stealing sensitive data. The origin of this campaign is not known yet, however, the campaign has been reportedly going on for several years targeting hackers with infected tools.
