The Jamf Threat Labs team has recently identified changes to the UpdateAgent malware dropper. These changes primarily focus on new executables written in Swift that reach out to a registration server to pull down a new set of instructions in the form of a bash script. Perhaps one of the most identifiable features of the malware is that it relies on the AWS infrastructure to host its various payloads and perform its infection status updates to the server. The continued development of this malware shows that its authors continue to remain active, trying to reach as many users as possible.
