Attackers have created an elaborate scheme to distribute a cryptocurrency trading program that installs a backdoor on a victim’s Mac or Windows PC.
Security researcher MalwareHunterTeam discovered a scheme where an attacker has created a fake company that is offering a free cryptocurrency trading platform called JMT Trader. When this program is installed, it will also infect a victim with a backdoor Trojan.
This scheme starts with a professionally designed web site where the attackers promote the JMT Trader program .
To help promote the site and program, they also created a Twitter account that is used to promote the fictitious company.
