The Gomir backdoor malware is a piece of cyber threat designed to infiltrate and compromise systems covertly. Once it gains unauthorized access, Gomir establishes a persistent presence by communicating with a remote command-and-control (C2) server. This connection allows the attacker to execute a wide range of malicious commands on the infected system. Gomir is capable of stealing sensitive data, which can be exfiltrated back to the attacker. Additionally, Gomir can download and install further malicious payloads, facilitating broader cyber-espionage or destructive activities.
