A new malware campaign on Discord uses the Babadeda crypter to hide malware that targets the crypto, NFT, and DeFi communities.

Babadeda is a crypter used to encrypt and obfuscate malicious payloads in what appear to be harmless application installers or programs.

Starting in May 2021, threat actors have been distributing remote access trojans obfuscated by Babadeda as a legitimate app on crypto-themed Discord channels.

Due to its complex obfuscation, it has a very low AV detection rate, and according to researchers at Morphisec, its infection rates are picking up speed.
