As if this year couldn’t be bad enough for some of us. This June, The Microsoft Security Intelligence found out a brand new malware circulating within the dark markets capable of compromising bank accounts, credit card private data, and crypto wallet IDs. This malware is then dubbed the ‘Anubis’ and is observed to be able to fully take advantage of the forked code that originated from another malware called ‘Loki.’

This newest Anubis malware now joins an emerging list of dangerous malwares that targets crypto wallets specifically. Microsoft warns the public that the Anubis can be downloaded directly from the internet via certain websites. This malware goes around stealing valuable information and then would promptly send them to C2 (Command and Control) servers using an HTTP POST order. Microsoft also stated that they have now tracked various limited attack operations utilizing the brand new dangerous malware.

Security experts are now reminding everyone to not to visit any sketchy-looking websites and keep away from anything related to the dark web. Furthermore, they warned the public to never open any strange email attachments, suspicious links, and dangerous-looking spams. Utilizing well-trusted anti-malware software is also recommendable.

With the ever-growing interest of people with cryptocurrencies, it is no surprise that cybercriminals have also made strides in formulating new attack approaches to compromise even more crypto wallets.
