Predator the Thief malware

A hacking campaign that infects victims with username and password-stealing malware has been updated with new tricks as cyber criminals look to make their attacks more efficient, stealthier and more lucrative.

It adds new phishing documents to use as the lure to hook victims, such as invoices; a previous campaign used a fake court summons as a lure. The malware has also been provided with more tricks to avoid detection and analysis, using shellcode to make the malware more effective at detecting debuggers and sandboxes – something it now checks for every five seconds.
