New Meta information stealer distributed in malspam campaign

Brand Duncan, an independent analyst, has discovered a malspam campaign delivering META, a new information stealer malware.

Information thieves can collect keystrokes (record keyboard input), exfiltrate data from browsers, steal clipboard data, two-factor authentication data, cryptocurrency wallet information, system information, and other data.

The range of data collected is determined by the information stealer’s capabilities. There are both simple and sophisticated thieves.

Cybercriminals typically use information stealers to steal login credentials (e.g., usernames and passwords), credit card information, social security numbers, ID card information, and so on. Their goal is to take over online accounts, steal identities, and conduct unauthorised transactions and purchases.
