Here is the research paper: https://www.nature.com/articles/nature25792
Authors: Judd D. Bowman, Alan E. E. Rogers, Raul A. Monsalve, Thomas J. Mozdzen & Nivedita Mahesh

This evidence seems to suggest that the dark matter is particles that are less than four times the mass of a proton and are moving at non-relativistic speeds. This is consistent with dark matter particles being so-called WIMPs: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Weakly_interacting_massive_particles.
