It’s not really an unknown fact that we are surrounded by a huge number of philosophies. People like to preach some, while disputing the others and it’s kind of left on us to decide which side are we picking. This habit of developing certain philosophies isn’t new though. It has been around for ages. In fact, the concept of philosophies and beliefs used to play a big part in formation of groups that would then practically live together. Nevertheless, even though there is a sizeable chance that the viewpoint you preach might differ from the person living next door, there are still some notions that, more or less, remain common between all the human beings. One such notion could be the prevalence of change. No matter which part of society you belong to, you are likely to be well aware of the saying “change is the only constant.”
If not anything else, we have done well to positively underline it every now and then with all the reforms we have brought in that are constantly changing the way we live our life. We, of course, couldn’t have achieved it without the input of technology. The magnitude of our technology-inspired success has been humongous, but as it currently looks like, it might be just be turning into our unbecoming. U.S, turmoil on the cybersecurity front this year has given us a reality check, but the ground on which country is walking right now is about to become even stickier.
We are always improving our technological setup, but along with us, threat actors are also regularly honing their tools, and Raccoon Stealer is becoming a big example of that. Recently, the stealer-as-a-service platform announced its latest update, which included tools to steal cryptocurrency from a target’s device. There are also new remote features available to drop malware and excavate files, but the biggest change has been something else.
Raccoon Stealer has introduced new distribution networks to facilitate different types of cyberattacks. The fact that users are becoming increasingly cautious about what they click upon in their inbox, isn’t lost on the hackers. Therefore, the platform now encourages drawing in the victim by ranking high on Google searches. Although there will certainly be a variety of baits to lure the user, one that is touted around right now is pirated software tools that promise cracked licensed software for free.
