Napolar is a Trojan used to steal information from infected computers. Napolar made its first appearances in early 2013 and quickly gained popularity among criminals. Currently, PC security researchers have noticed hundreds of cases of attempted Napolar attacks every day. Napolar goes by various aliases. Napolar is also widely known as Solarbot. Napolar first started to be noticed in May after advertisements for this Trojan started to appear in underground forums and websites. Napolar infections increased significantly in the weeks after these advertisements started to appear.

A Cheap Tool that Can Generate High Profit

The majority of Napolar attacks started to appear in mid-August. Currently, malware researchers estimate that thousands of Napolar infections are active, especially in South America. One aspect of Napolar that has caught the attention of malware researchers is that this threat is promoted with a professionally designed website that is accessible to the public and that contains information on developing Napolar plug-ins. The website even contains a user manual for this Trojan. However, the most alarming aspect of Napolar is its low price. Anyone can buy the Napolar Trojan's binary file (necessary to infect computers) for the impressively low cost of two hundred dollars. Similar Trojans can cost thousands of dollars, making this low-cost threat particularly ominous.

Napolar not So Impossible Mission is to Seize Personal Information

Napolar may be used to carry out Distributed Denial of Service Attacks (DdoS), establish an unauthorized proxy, steal sensitive data such as passwords and login information and spy on the computer users' online activity. The Napolar uses a modular design that allows its functionality to be extended through the use of plug-ins. Plug-ins for this threat may be developed to add new features. For example, a plug-in may be added to Napolar that allows criminals to steal Bitcoin wallets or target a specific bank's login credentials. Although the Napolar Trojan has worldwide reach, most Napolar attacks have occurred in Latin American countries. It is important to note that there are numerous other Trojans today that offer similar features to the Napolar Trojan and that are widely used. For example, the many variants of the ZeuS Trojan come to mind. However, Napolar's low price makes Napolar stand out from these alternatives.
