Monero Mining Trojan Written in AutoHotKey

A polymorphic parasitic cryptominer written in the AutoHotKey scripting language has been spotted by Trend Micro. The trojan joins a command and control network and mines for the Monero cryptocurrency.

Trend Micro writes:

RETADUP’s AutoHotKey version bears considerable resemblance to its AutoIt variant in terms of the endgame (cryptocurrency mining) and the baselines it uses — the techniques it employs to propagate, evade detection, and install the malicious Monero miner.

This new variant is coded in AutoHotKey, an open-source scripting language used in Windows for creating hotkeys (i.e., keyboard shortcuts, macros, software automation).
