Brazilian Trojan uses government servers and Google Chrome plugins to steal data

August 2013 by ESET

ESET has uncovered a banking Trojan targeting Brazilian computers by using a Brazilian government server to collect victim’s information and Google Chrome(tm) browser plugins to steal sensitive data.

According to the findings of ESET’s latest research, the banking Trojan spread using social engineering techniques to infect user’s PC. Among the data it collected were Brazilian personal ID numbers, passwords and PIN or 4-digit validation number of cash cards and account numbers.

Through collaboration with CERT.BR, the Brazilian authority responsible for handling network threats, ESET has been able to help disable this attack and block the email accounts related to this threat - informing the affected institutions and organisations about the attack.
