Eternal Stealer – a malware family – can access data from systems like Credential Manager, Vault, and Network Passwords. Browsers, password managers, email clients, messengers, and offline cryptowallets are all targets of this malware (cold wallets). Its creator uses Telegram IM (Instant Messaging) service to market their malicious wares.
Recently some researchers examined the ‘Eternity Project,’ a Tor website that sells a wide range of malware, including stealers, miners, ransomware, and DDoS Bots. Its operators also run a Telegram channel with 500 followers, which is used to share information related to malware updates. Through their Telegram channel, they allow their customers to customize the binary characteristics.
The Stealer module is available for $260 per year as a subscription. It steals sensitive data such as passwords, cookies, credit cards, and crypto-wallets from infected systems. Telegram Bot is used to exfiltrate stolen data.
Eternity Miner & Clipper
Customers can configure the Eternity Miner module with their own Monero pool and AntiVM features for $90 as a yearly subscription. For $110, the Eternity operators also offer the clipper malware, which monitors the clipboard for cryptocurrency wallet addresses and substitutes them with the attackers’ wallet addresses.
Eternity Ransomware & Worm
The Eternity Ransomware costs $490, whilst the Eternity Worm costs $390.
According to researchers, they have seen a considerable growth in cybercrime via Telegram groups and cybercrime forum, where TAs sell their products without any oversight.
