RedLine hijacked passwords | Tivi


Phishing campaign hijacks more than 441,000 account logins, reports Bleeping Computer. The campaign used a malware called RedLine.

According to Bleeping Computer, RedLine is currently the most used data-stealing malware. It is distributed, among other things, as an e-mail attachment, in Youtube scams, and through downloaders.

Once installed, the RedLine malware attempts to steal user credentials, debit card information, cookie information, and information stored in browsers. In addition, it attempts to access VPN data, steal cryptocurrencies, install other malware, or run malicious code.

Once the stolen data has been passed on to an attacker, this one, according to Bleeping Computer, could sell the data on the dark web for $ 5.

Security Specialist Bob Diachenkosta said it had found more than 6 million data stored by RedLine between August and September 2021. The attacker had stored the stolen data on the server but did not protect it properly.

It is possible that the information leaked through the malware is related to the Lastpass password wallet special announcements some users. Notifications said the user’s password may have been compromised, but the service itself assured that the passwords could not be leaked.

Diachenko said he found several Lastpass credentials among the data stolen using RedLine.

Diachenko shared information from more than 441,000 unique email addresses with a security professional Troy Huntin with who added them Have I Been Pwned. Through this service, you can only find out if you have leaked your own data by entering an e-mail address.
