Trellix Detects Collaboration by Cybercriminals and Nation-States

Report Highlights New Programming Languages in Malware Development, Adoption of Malicious GenAI, and Acceleration of Geopolitical Threat Activity

Trellix, the cybersecurity company delivering the future of extended detection and response (XDR), today released The CyberThreat Report: November 2023 from its Advanced Research Center. Trellix observed indicators of collaboration between ransomware groups and nation-state-backed advanced persistent threat (APT) actors, adoption and usage of lesser-known programming languages for malware, and cybercriminals developing Generative AI (GenAI) tools.

“As technology advances, so does cybercrime – and understanding the changing landscape is vital for CISOs and SecOps teams to stay ahead of threats,” said John Fokker, Head of Threat Intelligence, Trellix Advanced Research Center. “Cybercriminals are becoming increasingly more agile, organized, and politically aligned. It is imperative defenders refer to threat intelligence to strengthen their security posture with limited resources.”
