        GravityRAT, a malware strain known for checking the CPU temperature of Windows computers to detect virtual machines or sandboxes, is now multi-platform spyware as it can now also be used to infect Android and macOS devices.

        The GravityRAT Remote Access Trojan (RAT) has been under active development by what looks like Pakistani hacker groups since at least 2015 and has been deployed in targeted attacks against Indian military organizations.

        The updated RAT sample was detected while analyzing an Android spyware app (i.e., Travel Mate Pro) that steals contacts, emails, and documents which get sent to the nortonupdates[.]online command-and-control server also used by two other malicious apps (Enigma and Titanium) targeting the Windows and macOS platforms.
