What is the issue - A new info-stealer malware dubbed Baldr which was first spotted in the underground forums in January 2019 is now spotted in the wild.
What are its capabilities?
Baldr malware is distributed via malicious apps, malicious software disguised as hacking tools, and a fake bitcoin miner. Once the malware gets installed on an infected device, it starts stealing data but does not gain persistence after stealing data. The stolen data that is transferred to the C&C server is not obfuscated.
“ Because such stealers are often non-resident (meaning they have no persistence mechanism) unless they are detected at the time of the attack, victims will be none-the-wiser that they have been compromised,” researchers described in a blog.
