Remtasu | Facebook Hacking Tool
Remtasu is a windows-based Trojan which is marketing itself as a Facebook hacking tool. It has accelerated globally over the past year and has now capability to disguise itself as an app for accessing people’s Facebook account credentials.
The tool contains a Keylogger that can capture all your keystrokes and store them in a file that is subsequently sent to the attacker’s server.
How Remtasu Works
The malicious tool is delivered via direct download websites. Once a user visits one of these websites, the dangerous Win32/Remtasu.Y malware automatically gets downloaded and executed on victim’s machine and hide itself among other files.
- Open and obtain information from the clipboard.
- Capture keystrokes.
- Store all the data in a file which is subsequently sent to an FTP server.
- The malware remains on the infected computer even when the victim reboots their system or attempts to find the malware threat in the list of active processes
The malware replicates itself, saving the copy in a folder that it also creates within the system32 folder. The new InstallDir folder remains hidden inside the system files, making it difficult for users to access.
Most affected parts of the world include Colombia, Turkey, Thailand and elsewhere. In past, Remtasu was distributed through malicious files attached to phishing emails purporting to be from legitimate government or businesses organisations.
