Cybercriminals develop tools to test malware before distribution

According to PandaLabs, cyber-crooks are looking for ways to test their creations before distributing them. An investigation conducted by the malware analysis and detection laboratory at Panda Security, has shown that cyber-crooks are collaborating on different forums and pages to develop test-tools that replicate the scans of some of the leading security solutions. This allows hackers to check their creations will be undetected before launching them.

These tools represent another piece of the new malware dynamic, in which cyber-crooks no longer seek to cause widespread alerts and make the headlines, but to go unnoticed. They therefore want to check their creations are undetected by companies before launching them
