WebDiscover Browser

WebDiscover Browser screenshot

WebDiscover Browser is an adware threat developed by a Canada-based company named WebDiscover Media. Once installed on a PC, the malicious app makes a series of unwanted changes to all browsers installed on the computer, leading to a deteriorating online surfing experience. WebDiscover replaces the default home pages and search engines of affected Internet browsers with its own WebDiscover Homepage and WebDiscover Search, respectively. Furthermore, the malicious app modifies the “new tab” settings so that the corrupted browsers launch the malware's own search portal page when the user opens a new tab. Chrome users may not even recognize WebDiscover as an unwanted program and think they...

The Shlayer Trojan is a cyber-threat aimed at Mac users who might be interested in trying out application stores other than the official App Store by Apple. The Shlayer Trojan might be promoted to the users as an independent application delivery platform that offers discounts on premium software.

CoronaVirus Ransomware

CoronaVirus Ransomware screenshot

The CoronaVirus Ransomware (also called CoronaVi2022 Ransomware) is a file-locker, which was released in the wild recently, and it seems that its author has opted to use the name of the Coronavirus (also known as COVID-19), which is a disease that is threatening users worldwide. Just like the disease it is named after, the CoronaVirus Ransomware also threatens users worldwide, but in a different way – it will try to encrypt their files, and also overwrite the contents of their drive's Master Boot Record (MBR). The latter operation may cause a lot of trouble, since the victims' computers will not load their operating system and, instead, they will display a copy of the CoronaVirus...

Hackers Spreading Malware via Coronavirus Maps Online screenshot

The ongoing outbreak of the coronavirus is now disrupting business across the world, but apparently cybercriminals have no days off, since they're just as active as they were before the beginning of the outbreak. It appears they are now capitalizing on the fears of the people regarding the pandemic. It was back in January that the hackers started using the coronavirus threat as a focus of an email campaign that infected users with malware, and now they are expanding their operations to coronavirus outbreak maps that follow the number of infections and deaths across the world. Many organizations are feeling the pressure from these attacks, such as John Hopkins University who created...

APT Attack Spreads Malware Using Coronavirus Theme

APT Attack Spreads Malware Using Coronavirus Theme screenshot

The APT (Advanced Persistent Threat) group was spotted sending out spear-phishing emails that allegedly have detailed information about COVID-19, a.k.a. Coronavirus, but instead, they infect the victims with a custom remote access Trojan (RAT). The group is using the coronavirus pandemic to infect unsuspecting victims with a previously unseen malware. The malware is dubbed 'Vicious Panda' by researchers, with the attackers using it in a campaign at the moment. Researchers managed to find two Rich Text Format (RTF) files that were targeting the Mongolian public sector during the outbreak. Once the files are open, a unique and custom-made remote access Trojan is executed. It develops a list...

Win32 malware.gen

Win32 malware.gen screenshot

Win32 Malware.gen is a so-called generic threat - a suspicious file fetched by an anti-virus scan that appears to be malicious but does not match any of the definitions of known malware threats contained in the anti-virus software's database. Therefore, an alert from an anti-malware program for a Win32 Malware.gen detection indicates that there is a 32-bit file on a Windows operating system that should be flagged for further inspection. An infection generally described as Win32 Malware.gen is thus a heuristic detection designed to indicate the presence of some kind of a yet undetermined Trojan horse for Windows PCs. It is also possible that files reported as a Win32 Malware.gen infection...

AntiMalware

A typical deceptive campaign is disguising harmful threats as legitimate security programs in order to steal money from inexperienced victims. AntiMalware is a particularly short-named version of this campaign, with clones with names such as Active Security and Total Security. AntiMalware uses an interface that is very similar to the Windows Defender and legitimate Microsoft security programs, to make the victim believe that AntiMalware is a legitimate anti-malware application. Observing AntiMalware's design, you will quickly spot authentic-looking Windows and Microsoft Security Essentials logos as well as a layout that may seem familiar to most users of legitimate Microsoft Security...

Mongo Search

The Mongo Search is a Web browser extension, which will not offer its users any helpful utilities or enhance their browsing quality by any means. The Mongo Search add-on has been listed as a PUP (Potentially Unwanted Program) by malware experts. This is because as soon as you install the Mongo Search extension, the add-on will alter the settings of your system. Changing the settings of a user's system without their consent is something a genuine Web browser extension will never partake in. The goal of the Mongo Search add-on is to set up the Browser.mongosearch.net website as your default new tab page. By doing this, the Mongo Search extension would boost the traffic of the affiliated website. This site hosts a basic search engine, which pales in comparison to services like Google, Yahoo and Bing. If you are redirected to the...

Guesstimateds.com

The Guesstimateds.com Web page hosts a common online tactic whose goal is to trick visitors into believing that they have won a high-value prize. Usually, fake sites like the Guesstimateds.com page claim that the users have won the latest model iPhone or Samsung mobile phones as they are certain to attract the attention of the users. To claim the expensive prize offered, the user will be required to complete a survey. To pressure the user further, the Guesstimateds.com site will spawn a timer that counts down two minutes. According to the website, the visitors only have two minutes to complete the survey and claim their prizes. Users are warned that unless they complete the survey within two minutes, they will not be able to claim the valuable prize.

'Transaction Received' Email Scam

There is a new online tactic that targets users who use cryptocurrencies – the 'Transactions Received' email scam. This online con is also known as 'Transactions received into blockchain wallet' email scam. The 'Transactions Received' email scam claims that the recipient's cryptocurrency wallet has been topped up with 0.55 BTC, which is about $5,200. It is understandable why such a sum would attract the attention of users and why they may want to investigate more. To make the scheme believable, the 'Transactions Received' email carries the logo of Blockchain.com. Furthermore, the fraudulent email also contains links to the official Blockchain.com applications for iPhone and Android. The recipient of the fake email will be required to click on a link, which is meant to confirm the transaction and help them claim the money. However, if...

Dupzom Trojan

The Dupzom Trojan is a threat that was first spotted over a decade ago, back in 2019. The goal of the Dupzom Trojan is to serve as an initial payload, which will then help the attackers plant more threats in the infiltrated system. There have been several key updates released in the 10-years that the Dupzom Trojan has been active. One of the most recent, significant updates was released in 2015. When the Dupzom Trojan infiltrates a targeted computer, it may not proceed with planting additional malware immediately. It is likely that the Dupzom Trojan will operate in the background for a while silently before taking the next step. The Dupzom Trojan will gain persistence on the compromised computer via a new Registry key. The Registry key in question would make sure that the Dupzom Trojan is up and running every time the users restart...

There are countless email tactics that mislead users into believing that they can become millionaires in just a few minutes. In the case of the 'UBS Investment' email scam, the targeted users will receive an email that would appear to offer them 15 million in GBP (Great British Pounds).

The message states that the sender has stumbled upon a bank account loaded with 15 million GBP, which belongs to a client of the bank who has passed away and does not have a family to inherit the fortune. The fraudsters claim to offer the targeted user 40% of the sum, as it should be split between them and the bank employee who is carrying out the complex operation. However, to...

VIVELAG Ransomware

Malware analysts have spotted a new ransomware threat, which appears to target French users mostly. The goal of this data-locking Trojan is to encrypt the files on the users' computers and then extort them for $250. Fortunately, the VIVELAG Ransomware is a rather low-quality threat that does not implement a complex and secure encryption algorithm. Security researchers have obtained a decryption key successfully, which will help the victims of the VIVELAG Ransomware to recover their encrypted data – '052250058205075025075207820.'

Hacking forums such as these are places where cybercriminals and hackers discuss, share, and sell hacking tools, malware, tutorials, and data leaks. Many hacking campaigns rely on tools that threat actors can easily obtain from hacking forums and dark web marketplaces.
