  • [TROJAN HORSE] data thieves penetrate the computer along with pirated software


    Raccoon and Vidar malware has long been distributed through hacked websites.

    The French company SEKOIA.IO, specializing in cybersecurity, has discovered an entire infrastructure of fake sites for downloading pirated software. More than 250 domains are used to spread malware. Moreover, the sites have been functioning for a very long time - since the beginning of 2020.

    SEKOIA.IO experts report that domains are controlled by attackers through the Traffic Direction System (TDS), which allows other cybercriminals to rent a distribution channel for their own malware.

    The attacks are aimed at users looking for hacked versions of software and games on search engines. Fraudsters use "SEO Poisoning" technology to bring phishing websites to the top of search results so that the victim is "hooked" for sure.

    On the aforementioned site, of course, there is a button for downloading the program. However, when clicked, a five-stage URL redirection is launched, leading the person, as a result, to the archived password-protected RAR file on GitHub.

    “Such a complex structure is certainly designed to provide fault tolerance, and it also simplifies and speeds up changes to this system,” the French researchers say.

    The way the malware works on the victim's computer is as follows: when a person unpacks a RAR archive and runs the executable file contained in it, one of two families of malicious programs is installed into the system: Raccoon or Vidar.

    The scheme is very similar to the one previously described by specialists from Cyble. At that time, the attackers replaced Google Ads advertising banners with an offer to download popular programs like AnyDesk, Bluestacks, Notepad++ and Zoom. Of course, the banners led to the download of malware called Rhadamanthys.

    An alternate attack has also been seen using phishing emails masquerading as software updates or even bank statements to trick users into clicking on fraudulent links.

    Both Raccoon and Vidar are capable of sending a wide range of personal information from hacked computers to attackers. For example, steal accounts from web browsers, as well as data from cryptocurrency wallets.

    Users are advised to refrain from downloading pirated software and, whenever possible, set up two-factor authentication to secure accounts.

    "It is imperative that users exercise caution when receiving spam emails or visiting phishing websites, and carefully check the source before downloading any software," the researchers say.
