A newly-discovered keylogger malware has been found infecting computers in the wild. Though the malware is far from advanced, it’s efficient at stealing passwords.
Researchers at Cybereason, a Boston, Mass.- based security firm, call the malware “Fauxpersky,” as it impersonates the Russian antivirus software Kaspersky. The keylogger is built off a popular app, AutoHotKey, which lets users write small scripts for automating tasks, and compile the script into an executable file. In this case, the app was abused to build a keylogger, which spreads through USB drives and infects Windows PCs — and replicates on the computer’s listed drives.
