As usual, it targets ARM-based devices and it tries to download other files (privntpd1, privsshd1, privopenssh1, privbash1, privtftp1, privwget1 etc) via curl or wget (whichever is available on the infected devices). As usual, we suspect this loader to be injected via unauthenticated telnet/hard-coded credentials – although it could be a RCE, but we haven’t found indications about that. As soon
