Bandit Stealer is a specific type of malware that is designed to steal sensitive information from infected systems. It is known for its capabilities to harvest various types of data, including login credentials, cryptocurrency wallets, browser cookies, and more. The stolen information is typically sent to remote servers controlled by the attackers, who can then use it for malicious purposes such as identity theft, financial fraud, or unauthorized access to online accounts.
Bandit Stealer employs several techniques to infect computers and remain undetected. It often spreads through phishing emails, malicious downloads from compromised websites, or exploit kits that target vulnerabilities in outdated software. Once the malware infects a system, it may establish persistence by modifying system settings or creating startup entries to ensure it runs every time the computer is booted.
Once active, Bandit Stealer typically operates stealthily to avoid detection. It can capture keystrokes, take screenshots, log browser activity, and scrape data from various applications and files. It may specifically target sensitive information related to online banking, payment systems, cryptocurrency wallets, and popular software like web browsers and email clients.
