Malware disguised as Omicron data now reaches 12 countries

Published

on

The search for news about the covid-19 pandemic and the spread of the ômicron variant is already the target of scams on the internet. The Fortinet Security Lab identified a new type of cybercrime that takes advantage of the topic to steal information from careless users.

According to the report, the scam usually starts via email, in a message that contains an attachment with alleged data about the variant. However, suspicion soon follows: the file “Omicron Stats.exe” is an executable, which should already serve as a warning to users and email clients.

In fact, this is malware known as Redline Stealer, which has been around since at least March 2020 and is quite popular among cybercriminal groups. From a machine scan, it is able to extract access information such as logins, passwords, data saved from browser cookies and even cryptocurrency wallets.

What to do?

This new version of RedLine Stealer adapted for the pandemic has already been identified in 12 countries and has no defined targets, which means that it must be translated to more and more regions in search of potential victims.

Safety tips to avoid infection are basic guidelines when using email, including being careful with suspicious attachments and file extensions that don’t match your usage.

What can we expect from Electronic Arts for this year 2022? While the American publisher is still trying to save what remains of the industrial accident Battlefield 2042, the return of another franchise would also be in preparation for this end of the year, while another would simply have preferred to take off around 2023.

In any case, this is what journalist Tom Henderson is saying on Twitter: a new Need for Speed would be scheduled for fall 2022, and Dragon Age 4 will have to wait a while longer…

Previously called in for reinforcement on the development of Battlefield 2042, the Criterion Games studio would have finally taken over the project Need for Speed at full throttle, with a release planned around next September and October… No further information for the moment. But given the timing, we shouldn’t have to wait long to learn more about it. If E3 doesn’t seem like a guaranteed event right now, Electronic Arts is sure to host its now annual EA Play conference in the middle of June, with potential new announcements on the way—and a call from the bitumen, if these rumors turn out to be true.

It is nevertheless a safe bet that this Need for Speed is well planned for this year. Henderson is thus not at his first leak: last September, the American journalist teased the announcement of star wars eclipse, the Quantic Dreams game subsequently formalized at the beginning of December 2021. In addition, Electronic Arts had already mentioned the release of a game Need for Speed in a financial report published in… 2020. Time flies.

In a less optimistic genre, Henderson gives news of the project Dragon Age 4. Its development has recently undergone some changes and is now turning exclusively to next-gen consoles and PC; but at the moment, no release date has been announced… And if the last echoes suggested that it would not arrive before next spring, this new game could simply be delayed for next year. In the meantime, as always, more information…
