A group of threat actors started up a cybercrime campaign named MasterMana Botnet to take over the machine and empty your e-wallet.
It is reported that this cybercrime costs very little yet able to infect thousands of networks like crypto wallets and business email compromise on a weekly basis. The campaign is said to be in connection with a team of worldwide cybercriminals called Gorgon Group.
“When it came down to monetary cost, the only thing that these actors were paying for was the $100 for one Trojan and the $60 a month for a virtual private server from one particular provider”, the Director of Intelligence for Prevailion, Danny Adamitis stated.
Basically, the operation of this campaign starts with victims being forced to download a malicious file which eventually leads to the installation of trojan, specifically Azorult variant or Revenge Rat to enable access without physical contact and abstract the usernames, passwords and other contents of e-wallets.
Adamitis recommend a “defence-in-depth strategy with multiple security solutions including properly configured firewalls, email protection, and end-point antivirus solutions”.
