Windows users should be careful.
In a tweet on August 27, Microsoft Security Intelligence (MSI) warned crypto owners who are also Windows users that crypto wallets were at risk due to new malware
The new malware called Anubis uses programming code derived from Loki. In the process, crypto wallet access data, credit card information and other valuable information are stolen from Windows users.
According to MSI, this malware was first discovered in the cybercriminal underground in June. The malware has the same name as another dangerous banking Trojan that has been rampant on Android smartphones for months.
MSI emphasized that the malware was controllable.
It was said that this was „apparently only used to a limited extent. Only a handful of known download URLs and C2 servers were used“
On certain websites, users are tricked into downloading Anubis. The malware then steals information and sends it to command and control servers using an HTTP POST command.
MSI said the company will continue to monitor the threat. Cyber security experts said you shouldn’t click on emails that seem strange to you. Loki’s original code also used social engineering techniques to deceive the victims. Attachments were sent by email and as soon as you click on them, the malware was installed.
As Cointelegraph previously reported , there is another new malware that is dangerous for crypto users in three ways.
