Popular media editing site is hacked and distributes Banking Trojan

trojan

The popular VSDC media editing site has fallen victim hackers, who use it to distribute Banking Trojan and steal user information. If you downloaded this program from the end of February to the end of March, then your computer is most likely to get infected.

Today, The Hacker News, published one report of Dr. Web site according to which hackers captured the VSDC website and replaced software downloads to lead to malware versions, putting more than one million site users at risk of being infected by Win32.Bolik.2 banking trojan and KPOT stealer.

The paradox of the case is that although the site is so popular, it works and offers software downloads via an unsecure HTTP connection.

The hackers' motivations behind the attack have not yet been known, but they do not seem to target all users without exception. Dr.Web researchers found a malicious JavaScript code on the VSDC site, designed to test the visitor's geographical location and replace the download links only for visitors from the United Kingdom, the US, Canada and Australia.

What to do if you are infected

Simply installing the regular software update will not remove the malware code from an infected system.

Therefore, if you downloaded the software at this time, you should immediately install antivirus software with the latest updates and scan your system for malware.

In addition, it is recommended that affected users change their passwords for important social media and bank accounts after cleaning the systems or from a different device.
