Griffon

aka: Harpy

Actor(s): FIN7


GRIFFON is a lightweight JavaScript validator-style implant without any persistence mechanism. The malware is designed for receiving modules to be executed in-memory and sending the results to C2s. The first module downloaded by the GRIFFON malware to the victim’s computer is an information-gathering JavaScript, which allows the cybercriminals to understand the context of the infected workstation.
