The Raccoon Infostealer injury program has grown in popularity lately.
The damage program was first seen almost a year ago but now offers many features that other damage programs have but at a much lower price, reports Bleeping Computer.
The program, also known by the names Legion, Mohazo and Racealer, is priced via either the Malware service Maas, priced at either $ 75 a week or $ 200 a month, and has recently become one of the best-selling and popular programs.
The program has also received many positive user reviews, although a recurring criticism is that the program is quite simple.
At the same time, the popularity of the program is believed to be partly because it does not require large amounts of technical know-how to use.
The damage program can be used to steal data from close to 60 different programs from a victim’s computer.
The programs then include browsers like Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge, Opera and Vivaldi, wallets for cryptocurrencies such as Electrum, Ethereum, and Monero as well as e-mail clients like Outlook and Thunderbird.
The program can also be used to take pictures of the victim’s desk or to add other malicious programs. Raccoon Infostealer operates in secret and collects all data in a text file on the computer, which is then sent away and all traces after the program is deleted.
According to security researchers, Raccoon Infostealer is usually planted on victims’ computers through phishing, exploit kits or as part of unwanted applications.
