Recorded Future finds nearly 500 malware controllers for 14 different families of remote-access Trojans, as well as the corporate networks they have infected.

A proof-of-concept system designed to detect remote-access Trojans (RATs) using only network data uncovered infections at companies in a variety of industries, according to a report released this week by information analysis firm Recorded Future.

Using only network scans and metadata collected between Dec. 2, 2018, and Jan. 8, 2019, Recorded Future uncovered 481 command-and-control (C2) servers used by attackers to manage computer systems compromised by 14 different families of RATs. In the report, which focused on three particular Trojans — Emotet, Xtreme RAT, and ZeroAccess — the company found nearly 20 command-and-control (C2) servers managing Emotet infections, more than 30 managing ZeroAccess infections, and nearly 70 managing xTreme RAT infections.
