Original source:

Threat: Backdoor.Win32.Kwak.12
Vulnerability: Remote Command Execution
Description: The backdoor runs an FTP server that listens on TCP port
37885. The malware is packed using UPX which is trivial to unpack by using
upx -d command, after observe various FTP commands supported using strings
util, we find one interesting string entry named "execute". Turns out this
will let us execute any command on the infected machine. Third-party
adversaries can add a persistent backdoor account on the infected system or
run any command they wish. This is easily accomplished as the malware also
suffers from a authentication bypass issue reference MVID-2021-0147.
