NimzaLoader malware was written in an unusual programming language to stop it from being detected

A prolific cyber criminal hacking operation is distributing new malware which is written in a programming language rarely used to compile malicious code.

Dubbed NimzaLoader by cybersecurity researchers at Proofpoint, the malware is written in Nim – and it’s thought that those behind the malware have decided to develop it this way in the hopes that choosing an unexpected programming language will make it more difficult to detect and analyse.

NimzaLoader malware is designed to provide cyber attackers with access to Windows computers, and with the ability to execute commands – something which could give those controlling the malware the ability to control the machine, steal sensitive information, or potentially deploy additional malware.
