Threat Alert: EvilExtractor

The malware that wants it all.


Threat Alert



EvilExtractor is a malware that begs the question, what do you want to keep to yourself? If you want to keep it, EvilExtractor wants to take it and give it to the bad guys. It steals browser history, wallets, passwords, files, and more. It steals by keystroke logging, activity tracking, screenshots, and even webcam. EvilExtractor gets around most antivirus software and is most often downloaded by clicking links or downloading files from phishing messages sent through email.


To protect your organization:

1. Run a next-generation endpoint protection solution, which goes beyond the definition-based antivirus software from years past. This kind of endpoint protection looks closely at patterns and behaviors of a piece of software, making it able to recognize threats it has not previously seen.

2. Keep an eye out for phishing red flags and regularly train employees on the latest threats. Technology can be a great help, but preparing your staff for cyber threats is key to defending against them.

3. Use great password habits and back them up with MFA. Take time to write and enforce good policy. The extra moments it takes to sign in may protect your organization from bad guys. Ask your IT partner for help if you do not know where to start.

4. Have a monitoring program in place to detect abnormal activities on organization devices and accounts.
