A Banking Trojan Goes Phishing

Roaming-MantisRoaming Mantis has drawn notoriety as a banking Trojan. Its criminal controllers, however, have recently given it some new functionality: phishing and cryptomining. The criminals have added a phishing option for use against iOS devices, and a cryptomining option that works against PCs.

Roaming Mantis has been "mostly mobile," researchers say. It's also focused on Android devices, so the iOS phishing represents a departure. Successful phishing directs users to a malicious site that harvests usernames, passwords, paycard numbers, paycard expiration dates, and CVVs.

Researchers at Kaspersky Labs find that Roaming Mantis is capable of hitting targets that use a remarkably large range of languages: Arabic, Armenian, Bulgarian, Bengali, Chinese (both traditional and simplified), Czech, English, Georgian, German, Hebrew, Hindi, Indonesian, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Malay, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Serbo-Croatian, Spanish, Tagalog, Thai, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese.
