Hackers Launch a New Phishing Attack Delivering Keylogger Disguised as Bank Payment Notice

Cybersecurity researchers have identified Agent Tesla, a malware that delivers an information stealer and keylogger in a new phishing campaign. A deep dive into the attacker’s mode of operation by Trustwave SpiderLabs revealed the attacker’s phishing email carries a message similar to a bank payment notification, instructing users to open an attachment to get more details about the notification. The attachment, an archive labelled Bank Handlowy w Warszawie – dowód wpłaty_pdf.tar.gz, conceals a malware loader that aids the deployment of Agent Tesla on the victim’s laptop.

A researcher named Bernard Baustista also stated, “This loader then used obfuscation to evade detection and leveraged polymorphic behaviour with complex decryption methods.” It is also worth noting that the loader can bypass antivirus defences, such as Windows Antimalware Scan Interface (AMSI), and retrieve the payload.
