In the beginning of March, ReversingLabs researchers encountered a malicious package on the Python Package Index (PyPI) named termcolour, a three-stage downloader published in multiple versions.

In fact, it had been published to PyPI two years earlier, and then removed. It reappeared on PyPI in the beginning of March — this time as a malicious downloader.
