A new ransomware campaign dubbed “Bad Rabbit” has hit a number of high profile targets in Russia and Eastern Europe. First detected on October 24th, 2017, Bad Rabbit was originally detected in Russia and Ukraine, along with a small number of infections reported in parts of eastern Europe, Turkey, and Germany. However, the attack now appears to be spreading to other regions, including reports from South Korea and the US.
BankBot is a family of Trojan malware targeting Android devices that surfaced in the second half of 2016. The main goal of this malware is to steal banking credentials from the victim’s device. It usually impersonates flash player updaters, android system tools, or other legitimate applications. Once installed, it hides itself and then tricks the user into typing his or her credentials into fake bank web pages that have been injected onto the device’s screen.
