The threat actors behind the Vidar malware have made changes to their backend infrastructure, indicating attempts to retool and conceal their online trail in response to public disclosures about their modus operandi.

"Vidar threat actors continue to rotate their backend IP infrastructure, favoring providers in Moldova and Russia," cybersecurity company Team Cymru said in a new analysis shared with The Hacker News.
"By using VPN infrastructure, which in at least part was also utilized by numerous other benign users, it is apparent that the Vidar threat actors may be taking steps to anonymize their management activities by hiding in general Internet noise," Team Cymru noted.
