Pierluigi Paganini December 29, 2023

The Resecurity’s HUNTER unit spotted a new version of the Meduza stealer (version (2.2)) that was released in the dark web.

On Christmas Eve, Resecurity’s HUNTER unit spotted the author of perspective password stealer Meduza has released a new version (2.2). One of the key significant improvements are support of more software clients (including browser-based cryptocurrency wallets), upgraded credit card (CC) grabber, and additional advanced mechanisms for password storage dump on various platforms to extract credentials and tokens. Altogether, Meduza makes a great competitor to Azorult, Redline, Racoon, and Vidar Stealer used by cybercriminals for account takeover (ATO), online-banking theft, and financial fraud.
