The Bitcoin Circuit crypto community has always been subject to the dangers of the Internet, mainly the actions of hackers who improve their theft techniques every day.
„A new information theft malware that we saw being sold for the first time… in June is now actively distributed in the wild. The malware is called Anubis and uses forked Loki malware code to steal system information, credentials, credit card details and crypto wallets,“ he said in Tweet.
As a result, in a Twitter thread, Microsoft Security Intelligence (MSI) has issued an alert to the crypto community using Windows about a new malware called Anubis.
Anubis appears to use forked code from Loki. It basically steals crypto wallet credentials, credit card details and any other valuable information from Windows users.
Another important piece of information is that, despite being named after an Android malware, the MSI claims that they are unrelated.
The Microsoft team also stated that the malware appears to be controllable and therefore users can trust Microsoft Defender.
