Windows Trojan steals login credentials from Google Chrome password manager

New Windows Trojan Steals Login Credentials Straight Out of the Google Chrome Password Manager

A recently discovered Trojan found in Windows, secretly steals login credentials stored in the Google Chrome browser’s password manager…

There’s a new Windows Trojan program that is able to break into and steal login credentials right from the password manager inside the Google Chrome browser. Called CStealer, it does what one would expect — clandestinely abscond away with login credentials in order to go about nefarious behaviors, like credential stuffing.

First discovered by MalwareHunterTeam, the malware connects directly to a remote MongoDB database and uses it to store the stolen credentials. This, rather than sending the information directly to only the initiating hacker. So, anyone with access can grab the data and use it for their own purposes.
