RisePro Stealer Attacks Windows Users Steals Sensitive Data

A new wave of cyber threats has emerged as the RisePro information stealer targets Windows users, compromising sensitive data and causing significant security concerns.

RisePro, which shares similarities with the Vidar stealer, is a Trojan-type malware that infiltrates systems to exfiltrate sensitive information in the form of logs, which are then sold on shadow markets.

How RisePro Operates

RisePro is distributed via a malware downloader called PrivateLoader, which tricks users into downloading and executing malicious software through deceptive emails, pirated software, and fake updating tools.

Once executed, RisePro can steal a wide array of data from up to 36 web browsers, including IP addresses, browsing history, cryptocurrency wallets, and passwords.

It can also capture screenshots and extract data from applications such as Authy Desktop, battle.net, and Discord.

The malware’s capabilities are extensive, targeting browser extensions like Authenticator and BinanceChainWallet, and it can potentially hijack online accounts, commit identity theft, and conduct fraudulent transactions.

RisePro is written in C++ and is sold via Telegram, where cybercriminals can interact with infected systems.

A recent tweet from Daily Dark Web warns of the distribution of a new malware called RisePro Stealer.

This malware is coded in C++ and is designed to collect sensitive information from the infected systems.

Once the information is collected, RisePro Stealer attempts to transfer it as logs to an external server.

This type of malware can pose a severe threat to the security of affected systems, as it can be used to steal sensitive data such as login credentials, financial information, and other confidential data.

Security Responses and Recommendations

To combat this threat, it is unnecessary to format the storage device; instead, RisePro can be removed with antivirus software or manually following the provided instructions.

Users are advised to be vigilant about the sources of their downloads and to maintain updated antivirus solutions to prevent such infiltrations.

RisePro’s emergence indicates the evolving cybercrime ecosystem, with stealer infections acting as a primary vector for initial attacks.

The malware’s infrastructure includes an administration panel hosted at a domain that allows access to stolen data logs only after signing into an account with valid credentials.

The RisePro stealer represents a significant threat to Windows users, capable of stealing a vast range of sensitive data and causing severe security issues.

Users must exercise caution and employ robust security measures to protect against sophisticated cyber threats.

Cybersecurity communities continue to monitor and analyze these threats to provide users with the necessary tools and knowledge to defend against them.

Low Rate DDoS Attack

9 of 10 sites on the AppTrana network have faced a DDoS attack in the last 30 days.
Some DDoS attacks could readily be blocked by rate-limiting, IP reputation checks and other basic mitigation methods.
More than 50% of the DDoS attacks are employing botnets to send slow DDoS attacks where millions of IPs are being employed to send one or two requests per minute..
Key takeaways include:

  • The mechanics of a low-DDoS attack
  • Fundamentals of behavioural AI and rate-limiting
  • Surgical mitigation actions to minimize false positives
  • Role of managed services in DDoS monitoring
