Cryptocurrency Malware Distributed via 13 NuGet Packages


Cryptocurrency Malware Distributed via 13 NuGet Packages

Cybersecurity researchers have uncovered a malicious cryptocurrency stealer malware that was distributed via 13 malicious NuGet packages as part of a supply chain attack targeting .NET developers.

The attack culminates in the deployment of a .NET-based persistent backdoor, called Impala Stealer, which is capable of gaining unauthorized access to users’ cryptocurrency accounts.

The payload uses a rare obfuscation technique, called ‘.NET AoT compilation’, to make the binary hard to reverse engineer.

Additionally, the second-stage payload has an auto-update mechanism to retrieve new versions of the executable from a remote location.

The findings highlight the need for safety measures to be taken at every step of the software development lifecycle to ensure the software supply chain remains secure.
