Is malware like Buer/RustyBuer written in Rust now detected in Emisoft?

Recommended Posts

The original Buer was written in C programming language, while the new variant is written in Rust programming language – leading researchers to name the new variant RustyBuer. "Rewriting the malware in Rust enables the threat actor to better evade existing Buer detection capabilities," said Proofpoint.

A change of programming language would more than likely invalidate any existing signatures. That just means we write new signatures for the newer variants that are not detected, and if someone happens to stumble upon any newer variants in the wild that Emsisoft Anti-Malware is not yet able to detect with signatures then the Behavior Blocker should quarantine any unknown programs or scripts that attempt to do anything potentially malicious.
