A new Golang-based information stealer malware dubbed Titan Stealer is being advertised by threat actors through their Telegram channel.

"The stealer is capable of stealing a variety of information from infected Windows machines, including credential data from browsers and crypto wallets, FTP client details, screenshots, system information, and grabbed files," Uptycs security researchers Karthickkumar Kathiresan and Shilpesh Trivedi said in a recent report.
"One of the primary reasons [threat actors] may be using Golang for their information stealer malware is because it allows them to easily create cross-platform malware that can run on multiple operating systems, such as Windows, Linux, and macOS," Cyble said in its own analysis of Titan Stealer.

"Additionally, the Go compiled binary files are small in size, making them more difficult to detect by security software."
