        “Purple Fox, a malware previously distributed via exploit kits and phishing emails, has now added a worm module that allows it to scan for and infect Windows systems reachable over the Internet in ongoing attacks.

        The malware comes with rootkit and backdoor capabilities, was first spotted in 2018 after infecting at least 30,000 devices, and is used as a downloader to deploy other malware strains.”
