According to a report by Bleeping Computer, Anomaly Security researchers have discovered this new malware attack that uses a Word document claiming to be created with “Windows 11 Alpha”. This file then prompts users to take a few simple steps to open it. After users complete the mentioned steps, a code is activated that steals their financial information.
The researchers also reveal that a FIN7 cybercrime group is likely responsible for the malware campaign. Researchers are unable to confirm the exact method of spreading the malicious file, but the attackers are likely using phishing or spear phishing techniques.
Researchers at cybersecurity firm Anomali have analyzed six of these documents and say the delivered backdoor appears to be a variant of a payload that has been commonly used by the FIN7 group since at least 2018. ”
