Malware called ‚Coronavirus Maps‘ is infecting PCs

People looking for cartographic presentations of the spread of the Coronavirus have been targeted by hackers. The user is tricked to download and run a malicious application that shows a map of the reported cases and the global distribution of COVID-19.

The malware is called AZORult. It collects information stored in web browsers, particularly cookies, browsing histories, user IDs, passwords, and even cryptocurrency keys. The malware is even capable of generating a hidden administrator account in infected computers to enable connections via the remote desktop protocol (RDP).
