Malware Mentions in Banking

This chart shows the trending Malware related to Banking over the last week.

Weekly Industry View
Industry Information
Banking & Finance ESET researchers observed a new Latin American banking trojan, dubbed Mispadu, targeting Brazilian and Mexican users. Different versions were created for each country, each using different installers and stages and other slight variations were observed. Similarities were found with other Latin American banking trojans, such as Amavaldo and Casbaneiro. Mispadu’s distribution methods include spam and malvertising. For example, when targeting Brazilian users, sponsored advertisements on Facebook offering discount coupons for McDonald’s were used to lure victims to a malicious site. The fake coupons are downloaded from the same Yandex[.]Mail account in both the spam emails and the fake websites. Mispadu was also observed being spread alongside a malicious Google Chrome browser. Its purpose is to steal credit card data and banking data, specifically from the Brazilian payment system Boleto.
Government In response to ongoing anti-government protests that started on November 15th, 2019, the Iranian government cut off internet access for its citizens. The protests were in response to an announcement by the government of a 50% increase in fuel prices. According to the government, its response was out of ‘national security interests.’ Some citizens discovered that a second internet network, which the government and universities can access, is still operational. Iran’s IT minister Mohammad-Javad Azari Jahromi denied suspicions that the government is building its own nationwide ‘internal internet’ that could be used to track citizens and prevent them from accessing the broader global internet.
Technology Researchers at Checkmarx identified a vulnerability, tracked as CVE-2019-2234, which stems from a permission bypass issue in applications that access the camera on Android devices. The researchers originally tested their attack on Google smartphones and warned of its potential impact on other Android devices. Samsung has since confirmed it is affected. An attacker could exploit the vulnerability by creating a malicious application that can retrieve input from the microphone, camera and GPS locator without requiring permission. This works even in a situation when the phone is locked or being used to make a call. The researchers also found attack paths that gave them access to stored videos, photos and GPS metadata.
Retail, Hospitality & Tourism Researchers at Venafi identified over 100,000 lookalike domains which were being used to target the customers of 20 major retailers in the US, UK, France, Germany and Australia. The attackers, who were primarily attempting to acquire financial information, used valid TLS certificates. Sixty percent of the malicious domains were using free certificates from Let’s Encrypt.
Cryptocurrency A coin stealer has been found in the Linux 64-bit command line (CLI) of Monero binaries download. Monero warned users who downloaded the CLI wallet between ‘2:30 AM UTC and 4:30PM UTC’ on November 18th, 2019, to check the hashes of their binaries. Researcher Bary Parys was also able to get a Windows malware sample from the attacker’s C2. The Windows version attempts to exfiltrate the binaries in a similar manner to the Linux coin stealer.
