New malware steals data and mine crypto, no anti-malware capable to tackle yet

Researchers recently found new malware that is capable of stealing data and mining crypto discreetly, with no anti-malware solution can tackle yet as of now. 

Holiday season is here, but the “malware business” doesn’t seem to slow down.

A new strain of malware, called L0rdix that's capable of stealing data, mining crypto discreetly on the affected PC and evading anti-malware tools detection just found by researchers.

What makes L0rdix even more dangerous is that, since no anti-malware solution in the market is currently capable of tackling L0rdix, it can easily infect other hosts, such as removable storage, network drives as well as other computers on a network.

The threat can be even greater, with its botnet capabilities, researchers said. Moreover, anyone with malicious mind can get it easily for only $60 from the Darkweb, as reported by Nulltx.

As it is still unclear how to prevent of getting infected by L0rdix, let alone to deal with it, probably "Mind what you click and stay safe" is the best suggestion to all web surfers out there, for now.
