Social engineering-driven malware threats continue to be a big threat, but new research details how cybercriminals profit off such schemes to launder hundreds of thousands of dollars from stolen credit cards of unsuspecting victims.

Cybersecurity firm Check Point Research, in a report shared with The Hacker news, uncovered the digital trail of a Nigerian cybercriminal, who went by the name of “Dton” and targeted hundreds of thousands of people under the moniker of “Bill Henry” by sending them malicious emails with custom-built malware.

The company said it disclosed the findings to concerned Nigerian and international law enforcement authorities for further action.​
