Starlink is thew new bait for a RaccoonStealer global campaign. The cybersecurity researcher “idclickthat” discovered it. A fake official website allows users the “free download” of the internet service. However, the rar file contains a “setup” exe: the malware. RaccoonStealer is a credential-stealing Trojan, advertised and sold on underground forums as malware-as-a-service (MaaS) for $75 a week or $200 a month, and sometimes it is distributed via the Rig Exploit Kit. It gathers personal information including passwords, browser cookies and autofill data, as well as cryptowallet details. Additionally, Raccoon Stealer records system information such as IP addresses and geo-location data.
