A new study conducted by Uptycs has uncovered a stark increase in the distribution of information stealing (a.k.a. infostealer or stealer) malware. Incidents have more than doubled in Q1 2023, indicating an alarming trend that threatens global organizations.
According to the new Uptycs’ whitepaper, Stealers are Organization Killers, a variety of new info stealers have emerged this year, preying on Windows, Linux, and macOS systems.
Telegram has notably been used extensively by these malware authors for command, control, and data exfiltration.
