Security researchers have discovered a new infostealer called Zingostealer that is capable of dropping additional malware and cryptominers onto infected devices.
According to reports, Zingostealer is distributed through malicious email attachments and is designed to steal sensitive information such as login credentials and financial data. Once it has infected a device, it can also download and install other malware, including cryptominers, which use the device’s resources to mine cryptocurrency for the attackers.
One of the key features of Zingostealer is its ability to remain stealthy and avoid detection. It uses a number of techniques to evade security software, including the use of legitimate-looking file names and the ability to disable certain security features.
The discovery of Zingostealer highlights the ongoing threat of infostealers and the need for individuals and organizations to protect themselves against these types of attacks. This includes implementing strong security measures, such as antivirus software, and being vigilant about opening suspicious email attachments.
