VMware Issues a Warning About the ‘ChromeLoader’ Ransomware and Destructive Malware


VMware’s Carbon Black team warns that the ChromeLoader malware is now delivering malware such as ZipBomb and the Enigma ransomware to business services and government organizations.

ChromeLoader was first identified as a Windows-specific threat in January 2022; a MacOS variant was discovered in March.
