Thus, the user who needs to access the IP scanner actually finds himself in the middle of a spoofing campaign to install the MadMxShel backdoor on his device.

On the fake sites, JavaScript is played when the download is initiated and a maliciously compressed file that claims to contain IP scanning software is downloaded to the victim’s device. The archive contains the IVIEWERS.dll library, as well as the Advanced-ip-scanner.exe executable, which uses a third-party DLL loading method to infect the device.

This is a complex and multi-stage process in which the user becomes a victim of unauthorized access to the system and covert surveillance. The malicious campaign is designed to take advantage of user inattention.
