This text discusses a group known as Anonymous Arabic, also referred to as Nameless Arabic, which is believed to have connections to Turkey and Syria. The group is responsible for creating and distributing the Silver RAT remote access trojan. This trojan targets Windows systems but the group plans to release an updated version that can also compromise Android devices.


The Silver RAT is a sophisticated tool that can bypass security software and launch hidden applications. It allows for the creation of malware for keylogging and ransomware attacks [2] [3] [4], as well as the ability to delete system restore points [2] [3]. The group behind Silver RAT [2], known as “Dangerous silver” and “Monstermc,” are also the developers of a previous program called S500 RAT [2]. The source code for Silver RAT was leaked in October [2], which has contributed to the group’s increasing sophistication.

In addition to their involvement with Silver RAT, the group operates on Telegram and online forums where they offer various illicit services. They sell malware-as-a-service and distribute cracked RATs from other developers [2]. One of the members of the group is a former game hacker in his early 20s who resides in Damascus [2], Syria [1] [2] [3] [4]. The group is active on Middle Eastern and Russian forums and is known to offer distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks on demand [3].

The group has a blog and website called Anonymous Arabic [4]. They have been observed using a botnet called BossNet to conduct DDoS attacks [4]. The US Department of Homeland Security’s Cyber Safety Review Board has identified the pipeline from juvenile hackers to cybercriminal enterprises as a significant threat [4]. Governments and private organizations should implement programs to redirect juveniles away from cybercrime [4].


The activities of Anonymous Arabic and their creation of the Silver RAT trojan have serious implications for cybersecurity. Their ability to bypass security software and launch hidden applications poses a significant threat to Windows systems. The group’s plans to target Android devices further highlight the need for increased vigilance and security measures. Additionally, their involvement in selling malware-as-a-service and distributing cracked RATs demonstrates the underground economy that exists for cybercriminals. It is crucial for governments and private organizations to implement programs that redirect juveniles away from cybercrime and address the pipeline from juvenile hackers to cybercriminal enterprises. By doing so, we can mitigate the threat posed by groups like Anonymous Arabic and protect our digital infrastructure.
