ElectroRAT is a year-long operation where attackers created fake cryptocurrency apps to trick users into installing malware. The operation has more than 6,500 victims to date and is being used to collect cryptocurrency wallet keys and drain accounts.
ElectroRAT is written from scratch in Golang and has Windows, Linux and macOS samples undetected in VirusTotal. The discovery comes at a time when cryptocurrency is surging and Bitcoin just exceeded a market cap of 50 billion dollars.
Hear from Avigayil Mechtinger, the researcher behind this discovery, on what makes this campaign so unique and how you can detect and respond if your machine has been compromised.
