Check Point Research (CPR) detected a Turkish based crypto miner malware campaign, dubbed ‘Nitrokod’, which infected machines across 11 countries

The malware distributers separate malicious activity from the downloaded fake software to avoid detection
Attack was initially found by Check Point XDR, which overcomes the attack’s evasion mechanism.
