Remcos Trojan

A highly customisable form of trojan malware has returned and is being distributed via phishing emails claiming that a payment is being made to a bank account.

The Remcos remote access trojan first emerged on underground forums in 2016 and has received a number of updates over the course of the last few years.

Available to crooks for as little as $58, the malware is an information stealer and surveillance tool, using capabilities including keylogging, taking screenshots, and stealing clipboard contents to secretly take usernames and passwords from infected victims.
