Easy to use trojan malware is gaining popularity, as it allows cyber criminals to steal credit card data, passwords and cryptocurrency. Raccoon Stealer, a trojan malware, has already infected hundreds of thousands of Windows users in numerous countries.

The first appearance of the trojan was noticed in April 2019 and has quickly risen to be one of the top-talked-about malware offerings in the cyber underworld, especially Russian forums.

Malware is selling for $200 with servicing of an easy-to-use back-end, full-pledge hosting and 24/7 support. Raccoon’s flexible nature allows it to be deployed to victim’s machines as an exploit kits, phishing and/or compromised software downloads. The phishing attacks use a crafted Office document to deliver the malware via email.

After a successful infection, Raccoon begins communicating with a C2 (command-and-control) server to access the resources required to conduct its payloads. Once up and running, malware can take screenshots, collect and steal system information and application logs, including logins, bank details, monitor emails and even steal from cryptocurrency wallets.
