TechTimes - 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.

My thoughts:  Considering that cryptocurrency is probably considered a lucrative target, this is not surprising.  If you read the document from the immediate link above, you see that it is believed this originated in a Russian language country.  As far as being "undetectable," they were discovered.

    Antivirus and anti-malware software have adapted to different threats. I'm sure this new threat will be resolved with updates from various antivirus and anti-malware software.

    It is an ongoing battle, new malware, new countermeasures and will never end.  You'd think that if you had something of value/salable on your system(s), you would stay on top of security and updates as well as having it locked down.
