BloodyStealer virus steals gamer data
The cyber security and anti-virus giant Kaspersky has warned of a new trojan called BloodStealer that targets gamers and steals login details to platforms like Steam.
Kaspersky reports that BloodStealer started appearing on forums where hackers sell software and services in March this year and that the trojan gathers passwords, cookies, and credit card information from infected devices.
- BloodyStealer is professionally developed and marketed
- Scans logs and databases to find credentials
- Exfiltrates data by sending a zip archive to a server
- Anti-debugging measures make the trojan hard to reverse-engineer
Data nightmare: Marketing for the trojan claims it can compromise client sessions for services like Bethesda Launcher, Epic Games Store, GOG, Origin, Steam, Telegram, and VimeWorld, as well as desktop and uTorrent files.
Wholesale victims: The trojan is spreading across Europe, Latin America and Asia-Pacific, and the gathered usernames, passwords, and credit card details are sold in bulk. One cybercrime outfit offered 280,000 account details for $4,000.
