Information stealers continue to dominate the threat landscape with AgentTesla being the top submitted malware family over the past week. Followed by SmokeLoader, Redline, and StealC malware families. The increase in information stealers over other malware classifications is a trend that we've been seeing for some time.
The rise can likely be attributed in part to threat actors increasingly using information stealers, which provide download-and-execute functionality to deploy additional payloads on infected hosts - in addition to the typical stealer functionality.
