New ‘RisePro’ Information Stealer Gaining Ground Among Cybercriminals


According to cyber threat company Flashpoint, the pay-per-install malware downloader service “PrivateLoader” is disseminating the recently discovered information thief known as “RisePro.”

RisePro, a C++ program, harvests potentially sensitive data from the infected machines and tries to smuggle it out as logs. RisePro was first discovered on December 13 and was found on Russian Market, a cybercrime marketplace where thieves upload and sell logs they have exfiltrated. The malware appears to be based on Vidar stealer, which has been examined numerous times in the past, according to Flashpoint.
