ASEC: CryptBot is being distributed via phishing sites. The info-stealing malware is disguised as a utility program, and the infection process changes continually

CryptBot is being distributed via phishing sites. It has been discovered by ASEC cybersecurity experts. The info-stealing malware is disguised as a utility program, and the infection process has been changing continually. The malicious code is downloaded in the zip format.
