ElectroRAT trojan makes full push to infect cryptocurrency users

A recently discovered trojan known as ElectroRAT is pulling out all the stops to try and infect cryptocurrency wallets. The actors behind this campaign have so far created three cryptocurrency-related apps that are disguised as legitimate. They've also invested in a full-fledged marketing campaign trying to encourage users to download the apps. If a victim downloads the trojanized apps, they are infected with the malware that then takes over their cryptocurrency wallet.
