A backdoor in information stealing malware, Prynt Stealer is used to steal data that is exfiltrated by other cyberattackers, according to Zscaler ThreatLabz researchers.
Already, the malware sells for $100 for a one-month license and $900 for a lifetime subscription, offering attackers tremendous capabilities. These include the ability to log keystrokes, steal credentials from web browsers, and suck data from Discord and Telegram.
Prynt Stealer code comes from two other open source malware families, AsyncRAT and StormKitty. New additions to the malware include a Telegram channel that collects information stolen from other threat actors through a backdoor.
To perform the data exfiltration, Prynt Stealer uses code copied from StormKitty with minor changes. The malware also includes an anti-analysis feature that equips the malware to continuously monitor the victim’s process list for processes such as taskmgr, netstat and wireshark,
As soon as the victim’s process list is detected, the malware blocks the Telegram command and control channels.
The researchers also identified two other variants of the malware written by the author of the malware, Prynt Stealer: WorldWind and DarkEye.
DarkEye is an implant with a free Prynt Stealer builder. The builder is designed to drop and execute a remote access trojan called Loda RAT, an AutoIT-based malware that can access and exfiltrate both system and user information. DarkEye also acts as a keylogger, takes screenshots, starts and terminates processes, and downloads additional malware payloads over a connection to a C2 server.
“While this untrustworthy behavior is nothing new in the world of cybercrime, the victims’ data end up in the hands of multiple threat actors, increasing the risks of one or more large-scale attacks to follow. Note that there are cracked/leaked copies of Prynt Stealer with the same backdoor, which in turn will benefit the malware author even without direct compensation,” write Zscaler ThreatLabz researchers Atinderpal Singh and Brett Stone-Gross.
