February 2018: Spritecoin: The Devious E-Wallet

14-SpriteCoin.png#asset:2907

Hi folks,

Getting a fake bank note is already frustrating, now imagine getting a fake digital currency. And then, imagine carrying a wallet that is spying on you.

Spritecoin is a fake wallet application which carries a ransomware and spyware. How? When downloading the "blockchain", it encrypts the victim's credential files for ransom. 

What's sadder is that, after paying, the victim instead is given a malicious file that has the ability to activate webcams and parse certificates and keys.

This devious sprite is spread out by advertisements in online forums, through a link which takes users to a page explaining what Spritecoin is and offers a link to download that wallet. So far, the best way to avoid it, is to avoid clicking on suspicious links or search whether it is a legitimate wallet before trying.

To know more on how it installs the ransomware on the victim's computer, go here: https://www.helpnetsecurity.co...
