New Malware targets Bitcoin users

Posted on Friday, June 17 2011 @ 23:14:28 CEST by


ARS Technica reports a new Trojan hose program discovered in the wild Thursday seeks out and steals Bitcoin wallets.
The malware, Infostealer.Coinbit, is fairly simple: it targets Windows machines and zeroes in on the standard file location for a Bitcoin wallet. It then e-mails the wallet—a data file containing private crypto keys—to the attacker by way of a server in Poland, according to Symantec, which was first to alert on the attack.

“If you use Bitcoins, you have the option to encrypt your wallet and we recommend that you choose a strong password for this in the event that an attacker is attempting to brute-force your wallet open,” Symantec’s Stephen Doherty wrote in a blog post Thursday.
