An “almost undetectable” hacking tool for sale on a malware forum

There is allegedly a new and rare type of malware available on the black market that contains features usually reserved for state hacking tools that make it virtually impossible to detect any antivirus software.

Known as BlackLotus, the malware is considered a Unified Extensible Firmware Interface (UEFI) bootkit. UEFI is a computing standard that acts as an interface between the operating system and firmware; when the computer is turned on, UEFI initializes the boot loader, which in turn starts the kernel and operating system.
