Short bio

Trojan.WallyShack is Malwarebytes’ detection name for a trojan downloader written in Delphi.

Type and source of the infection

Trojan.WallyShack gathers some basic information about the affected system and sends this to hardcoded C2 servers. Then it downloads and runs the payload. We found Trojan.WallyShck used in a Magecart related attack where the payload was Trojan.StealthWorker.GO.
