- Crypto Hackers Now Undetectable! This Babadeda Malware Installer Can Evade Antivirus Solutions, Experts Say
Crypto hackers are now undetectable after discovering a new malware installer called Babadeda. Experts said this new malicious tool allows blockchain thieves to breach Discord channels.
Once they entered the platform, cybersecurity experts explained that they would start deploying malicious campaigns using Babadeda, allowing them to steal NFTs, DeFi, and other digital tokens.
They added that the new malware installer can evade antivirus solutions, which enable the hackers to enter the Discord channels without being detected.
According to HackersNews' latest report, the malware distribution attacks conducted by Babadeda began way back in May.
‘The malware installer has been used in a variety of recent campaigns to deliver information stealers, RATs, and even LockBit ransomware,’ said researchers at Morphisec, a security solution provider.
The new Babadeda malware installer works by encrypting malicious codes, making them harder to detect, which is why it is also called a ‘crypter.’
Aside from this, it can also obfuscate and manipulate these codes. Morphisec experts added that hackers use this new tool to send decoy messages to their targeted Discord channels.
