A form of password, credit card details and cryptocurrency-stealing malware has been updated, making it even more potent for cyber criminals.

The Azorult malware has been been operating since 2016 and enables crooks to steal credentials including passwords, credit card details, browser histories and contents of cryptocurrency wallets from victims.

Now a new version of it is being advertised in an underground forum, as uncovered by researchers at tech security company Check Point, who describe it as "substantially updated".

New features include the ability to steal additional forms of crpytocurrency from the wallets of victims - BitcoinGold, electrumG, btcprivate (electrum-btcp), bitcore and Exodus Eden.
