Brazilians become the target of the CHAVECLOAK trojan.

According to a FortiGuard Lab researcher, Brazilian bank customers are victims of this new trojan that works through a phishing mail containing a PDF whose download triggers a zip file download, which later uses a DLL side-loading technique to execute the final malware. Further details about the attack revealed that the threat actor tricked users into downloading the pdf by the threat actor using a contract-themed DocuSign. Users click the read and sign button on the document, which results in a hidden attack. Sensitive data are exfiltrated after Lightshot[.]exe, which is present within the installer hidden in the read and sign button, is executed.
