THIS MALWARE CAN STEAL PASSWORDS,CREDIT CARD INFORMATION IN CHROME,SAFARI..!!

The malware named “CookieMiner” is capable of stealing browser cookies associated with mainstream cryptocurrency exchanges and wallet service websites visited by the victims.

 Global cybersecurity company Palo Alto Networks has discovered a malware that is capable of stealing saved usernames and passwords in Google Chrome, saved credit card credentials in Chrome and iPhones text messages.

It steals saved passwords in Chrome and iPhone text messages from iTunes backups on the tethered Mac.

“By leveraging the combination of stolen login credentials, web cookies and SMS data, based on past attacks like this, we believe the bad actors could bypass multi-factor authentication for these sites,” the researchers noted.

Web cookies are widely used for authentication. Once a user logs into a website, its cookies are stored for the web server to know the login status.
