Hello Everyone, today I’m gonna be talking about an very important Malware
which has been released on the internet to get hold of all the BankingPasswords, Private Data and Keystrokes.
The name of this virus is EventBot
First let’s understand what is Malware. Malware is an virus which acts as an legitimate application to collect the data of the users.
For ex, when you install a Malware which acts as a Facebook application, Facebook will run on your screen but in the background, the Malware will transport all your data to the attacker’s machine.
The EventBot Malware was discovered recently that it acts as Adobe Flash or Microsoft Word to cheat people.
The main motive of this malware is that it steals all the info related to banking and stuff. This also records all the Keystrokes that we type.
This Malware is first discovered on March 2020. This Malware is only present in the websites which we use to download apps on the internet.
The user doesn’t know whether the app/game he downloaded is legitimate or it contains Malwares and Trojans.
The best way to be safe from this Malware is that install apps only from play store and avoid other sources. This is a serious issue because this app steals our banking credentials to hack our bank accounts.
Also don’t give allow to all the permissions when you install a app for first time. Give the permission only when it’s relevant to the application.
