Analysis by MinervaLabs has revealed a new type of malware called BEEP, a highly stealthy malware that can evade detection by most antivirus software.

It uses a variety of techniques to hide itself, including encrypting its code and only decrypting it at runtime, using steganography to hide its presence in images, and using polymorphism to constantly change its code.


BEEP is also designed to be modular, meaning it can download additional components and update itself, making it even harder to detect.

The researchers believe that BEEP is likely being used by advanced threat actors for espionage and data theft, and recommend that organisations take steps to protect themselves against this type of threat, including using a combination of security tools, keeping their software up to date, and educating employees about the dangers of phishing and other social engineering attacks.
