This is what Microsoft had to say about this on Twitter:

In the past few months, Microsoft has been tracking a dynamic campaign targeting the aerospace and travel sectors with spear-phishing emails that distribute an actively developed loader, which then delivers RevengeRAT or AsyncRAT.

Needless to say that we should steer clear of these malicious software and simply don’t click on any links or download any files that we feel aren’t safe.

On the off chance that we do, and RATs are deployed, they are known to steal credentials, video, and images from a webcam.

Also, remember that anything that’s been copied to the system clipboard for pasting elsewhere is also going to be intercepted by the RAT.

Security organization Morphisec recently conducted activities meant to locate and flag such dangerous software. The remote access tools were disguised as advanced Crypter-as-a-Service.

Its important that we read and research about the potential threats we face while accessing some dark corners or downloading certain files.

Keeping up with how malware/ransomware changes and its being dealt with can save us in some situations.
