The Singapore-based research team, Group-IB, has identified 34 Russian cybercrime groups responsible for distributing info-stealing malware under the stealer-as-a-service model. The cybercriminals use this type of malware to target users of Steam, Roblox, and Amazon in 111 countries, obtaining user credentials stored in browsers, bank card details, and crypto wallet information from infected computers and selling them on the dark web. Group-IB estimates that more than 890,000 devices in 111 countries in the first seven months of 2022 have been infected. The five most attacked countries are the USA, Brazil, India, Germany, and Indonesia, while the estimated value of stolen credentials is around $5.8 million.
