Allcome Clipper Description

Allcome is classified as a clipper malware. Clippers are threats designed to access information saved in the clipboard (the temporary buffer space where copied data is stored) and substitute it with another. This attack is targeted at users who are active in the cryptocurrency sector mainly.
