This trojan attempts to steal personal information, including banking credentials. It is usually distributed through Office documents or PDFs attached on spam email.

Social engineering on the emails and attachments used to distribute this trojan are designed to entice recipients into clicking links or enabling macros, resulting in the download and installation of the trojan executable containing the credential theft payload.

This trojan has also been observed downloading and installing other malware.

To avoid this threat, always check whether an email is spoofed or fake before opening attachments or clicking links. Spoofed emails can be spotted through typos and suspicious sender addresses.
