Malware can be detrimental to retaining cybersecurity. A power shell empire agent C2 is a set of Command and Control Infrastructure tools that the attackers use to keep communicating with the targeted devices. The mechanism of attacks may vary but usually, C2 creates of several communication channels between the compromised device and the threat actor. The communication channels are then used to send manipulative instructions to the compromised devices. The device may also download malicious payloads and channel a way to steal data. C2 can be challenging to detect since they blend in with other types of legitimate traffic such as HTTP/HTTPS or DNS.  C2 infected device may act like a ‘Zombie’ where the malware becomes authoritative without the consent of the owner. These ‘Zombie’ machines can be hijacked to perform tasks as directed by the threat actor.

Reports show that Namecheap has been successful in satisfying its customers by “nuking” the C2 compromised web hosting page. The efforts of Namecheap have been appreciated by the Netizens on Twitter.
