A threat actor has been using multiple information stealers to harvest credentials and financial data from users worldwide, Cisco’s Talos security research unit warns.

Active since at least 2023, the threat actor, which Cisco tracks as CoralRaider, is likely of Vietnamese origin, and was previously seen targeting users in various Asian countries.

In early April, Cisco warned of CoralRaider’s use of a customized variant of QuasarRAT dubbed RotBot, along with the XClient stealer, to target financial and login information and steal social media accounts, including business and advertising accounts.

On Tuesday, Cisco revealed that, since February 2024, the threat actor has been targeting users worldwide with a combination of three information stealers, namely Cryptbot, LummaC2, and Rhadamanthys.

The attacks have been targeting individuals in Ecuador, Egypt, Germany, Japan, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, the Philippines, Poland, Syria, Turkey, the UK, and the US, with some of them identified as users of computer service call center organizations in Japan and civil defense service organizations in Syria.

“The affected users were downloading files masquerading as movie files through the browser, indicating the possibility of a widespread attack on users across various business verticals and geographies,” Cisco notes.
