The operators of Raspberry Robin are now employing two novel one-day exploits to achieve localized privilege escalation, cleverly refining and improving the malware to increase their stealth tactics. Apparently, Raspberry Robin either has a mole in an exploit sales outfit or its authors are efficiently developing these exploits in record time, reveals a report from Check Point.
