PuzzleMaker Gang Abused Google Chrome Zero-day in April
The PuzzleMaker Cybercrime Gang's end goal is to drop a remote shell on the compromised system, which could then be used to execute remote commands. In order to do this, however, the criminals also exploited old vulnerabilities found in unpatched Windows Systems – CVE-2021-31956 and CVE-2021-31955.
The risk of being infected by the threats that the PuzzleMaker Cybercrime Gang uses are numerous since remote code execution allows criminals to hijack the entire system, given that they have escalated privileges.
Protecting yourself from the PuzzleMaker Cybercrime Gang's attack and similar campaigns can be done by utilizing modern antivirus software, as well as by applying all patches to ensure that the operating system and software are protected from recent vulnerabilities.
