Researchers from Microsoft Security Intelligence found that a wallpaper of Kobe Bryant contained secret software that secretly hijacked someone's computer for digital currency, cryptojacking. Cryptojacking is an increasingly common method for hackers to earn cash, because it is very hard to identify for those not familiar with its methods. However, researchers found that there were several different types of malware which were able to work together to carry out this nefarious activity.
Researchers found that a variety of files were present on the Kobe's computer and these included software which was used to install a keylogger. These keysloggers were then used to collect credit card information. This type of malware was able to install itself on the computer of Kobe's assistant and steal credit card details, which was then used by the malware to buy a series of different items online. This malware was then able to sell the credit card details to fraudsters who were looking to use the stolen information to purchase goods.
Researchers also found that the malware had been downloaded onto Kobe's computer from several different sources, including the websites of malware distribution networks which are often linked to various criminal organisations. However, even with this knowledge it was only with advanced computer forensics that the researchers were able to successfully remove the malware.
Once the malware had been removed it was necessary to search through the computer to see what else had been installed. The malware had been installed into the computer so many times that there were numerous different files which had become embedded in the computer. For example, the malware had embedded itself into one of the computer's important registry files, which allowed it to read personal information which was saved on the computer. Once it had been able to gain access to this information, it was able to steal the user's credit card details and send them to fraudulent websites.
The malware had also embedded itself into the system settings of the computer and had allowed it to gain access to the internet protocol address (IP) which was used to connect to a website that was used for selling virtual currency. However, it was only when the malware had been removed that it was possible to detect and remove the malware from the computer.
Malware such as this is an extremely serious issue and should not be taken lightly. In the event that you have come across malware on your PC or laptop then you should take steps to ensure that it is deleted as soon as possible before the situation gets worse. There are many different software tools which can be used to perform this task and the best method for doing so is to first remove the malware from your system using an antivirus program.
