malware.azjf C2 traffic

L2 Linker


I am seeing a lot of traffic being identified as malware.azjf C2 traffic over the last couple of days since the last threat update. I have noticed a pattern that users are visiting Wordpress websites that use the owl carousel plugin and checking these sites on VT they come up clean so appears to be a false positive.

Is anyone else aware of this going on?

I have came across one from 17 November 2021. Same here, it points to a WordPress site with a carousel plugin.

Here are the IOCs:

Same here. I have hits for at least the following sites,(likely more though), however the commonality seems to be the carousel plugin.

As far as I can tell, this is not malicious traffic, rather a false positive match for C2 traffic.
