Malware attacks are on the rise, but thankfully, so is the vigilance of individuals and IT MSPs.
What is TrickBot?
“TrickBot is a modular banking trojan that targets user financial information and acts as a dropper for other malware”, said the report. It is using man-in-the-browser attacks to steal the log-in credentials for finance-related sessions.
How it’s working
It makes sure it is not running in a “sandbox environment” and then attempts to disable your antivirus programs.
Once it has established itself on a device,
Redirection attacks send victims to fraudulent banking site replicas when they navigate to certain banking websites. This fake website is hosted on the cyber threat actor’s (CTA) malicious server and harvests the victim’s login information.
A server-side injection intercepts the response from a bank’s server, injects additional client-side code into the webpage, and can steal the victim’s banking credentials through form grabbing. Form grabbing records sensitive information typed into HTML forms, rather than capturing all keystrokes as with a keylogger.
What you should do
Familiarize yourself and your staff with common phishing tactics. Education is the ultimate end-user security practice. This is a necessity for network security.
For ITonDemand clients, spam filtering and endpoint malware security are in place to secure you from the majority of cyber attacks.
