The New Cyber Threat that is TrickBoot

Posted by Griffin Ball on Dec 4, 2020 3:13:58 PM

Lighthouse IT Solutions has always wanted you to be well informed and well protected. As much as we hate to be the bearers of bad news, we need to warn you about the new cyber threat that is TrickBoot. (The amount of cybersecurity threats has only gotten more plentiful this year.

Typically, when a device is infected with malware, one of the safest methods you can use to remove it is by wiping the device and then restoring the important data from a backup. However with this method, the firmware of the device is unaffected. If malware is hiding well enough, then wiping the device means the malware is not removed.
