Since its inception, the malware loader known as BumbleBee has been involved in numerous cyberattacks, delivering harmful payloads from known malware families. It has consistently showcased its ability to evolve and resist detection - a clear signal that its development is far from over. This makes BumbleBee an interesting and important object of research. To protect itself against manual as well as automated analysis, BumbleBee uses various techniques to detect isolated analysis environments. Most of this logic is taken from an open-source sandbox detection project.
