Brad Haas Discusses BabaYaga Malware on the CyberWire Podcast

This entry was posted in WordPress Security on July 31, 2018 by Dan Moen   0 Replies

In early June we published an article and accompanying white paper detailing an interesting malware infection which we’ve internally dubbed BabaYaga. The relatively sophisticated malware is unique because it contains a number of features intended to ensure the infected site remains in working order. It keeps WordPress core up to date, performs and stores backups and even scans for and removes malware.

Brad HaasOn Saturday one of our Senior Security Analysts and the author of the BabaYaga white paper, Brad Haas, sat down for an interview with Dave Bittner on the CyberWire podcast. We think you’ll really enjoy the 20 minute interview. Simply click play below to hear it. If you prefer a written version a full transcript is available here.

As always we’d love to hear your thoughts and questions in the comments.
