The group behind the stealer-as-a-service platform, Raccoon Stealer, have recently updated their tools to steal cryptocurrency from a victim’s computer. The past few years have seen an extraordinary rise in cryptocurrency theft with 2019 seeing US$4.5 billion in stolen currency.
This latest campaign has skipped your inbox and is instead being distributed through malicious websites offering cracked software packages. These downloads contain password-protected archives that evade detection and can contain additional payloads such as cryptominers, malicious browser extensions, ransomware, and YouTube click-fraud bots.
Even as cryptocurrency prices ebb and flow, stealing cryptocurrency will still be a route criminal will take to make money. Cybercriminals can try to hide malware in password-protected archives, but Acronis Cyber Protect recognizes malicious behaviors like those seen in Raccoon Stealer and stops them from stealing your cryptocurrency.
