Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 researchers recently revealed a new malware strain called ‘SquirtDanger’ which drains an infected device of all information on the user.
The researchers report that organizations around the world have already been infected, including a Turkish university, an African telecommunications company and a Singaporean internet service provider.
The malware is able to take screenshots, send, download and delete files, and steal passwords. It can also swipe directory information and even steal the contents of cryptocurrency wallets. The researchers warn that the malware is for sale in the dark web, and that no industry is currently a specific target.
