Spammers are spreading Java-based remote access Trojans, known as jRATs, targeting tax filers with attachments named “IRS Updates.jar” and “Important_PDF.jar” that, if executed, give attackers access to compromised endpoints.
Zscaler, which is tracking the jRATs, believes some of the campaigns could be related to the Loki Trojan, used in attacks against Android phones last month.
