Also, it was confirmed that the site that distributes CryptBot disguising as a utility program download page is distributing Formbook as well. The filenames of these distributed malware are disguised as installer filenames

  • x86_x64_setup.exe
  • setup_installer.exe
  • setup_install.exe

As Formbook is injected in a normal process that is in the directory of explorer.exe and system32, the malicious behaviors are performed by the normal process. Besides user account information in the web browser, the malware can steal various information through keylogging, clipboard grabbing, and web browser form grabbing.
