What does Lebal do?

Lebal is a typical Trojan. It shows up on users’ computers without their knowledge and then starts doing its main job – gathering personal information. It goes without saying that users do not know anything about this. Let’s talk about data it can access. Analysis carried out by researchers at anti-spyware-101.com has clearly shown that Lebal goes to find out the version running on the compromised machine first things first. Then, it finds out what programs are running on the victim’s computer. Once it gets the needed information, it starts collecting private data from browsers, cookies, and information from emails and instant messaging clients. Also, it tries to get FTP credentials. Last but not least, it attempts to access cryptocurrency wallets. Frankly speaking, it might steal anything from users’ computers and then send this information to http://datacntrsecured.com/securityfilesdoc/gate.php so that cyber criminals behind this Trojan could access it. It is hard to say what they are going to do with all these details sent to them by Lebal, but it is very likely that they will all be used for various malicious purposes. They might even end up in the hands of disreputable companies or people having bad intentions. The sooner you delete Lebal, the better because it will send personal information it manages to get to its C&C server every day, meaning that cyber crooks will get more and more personal information with every new day.

Where does Lebal come from?

Specialists say that Lebal is also spread via emails, but it slightly differs from other Trojans because it is distributed camouflaged in several layers. First, it does look like an ordinary email from FedEx. Second, it contains a Google Drive link. Third, the malicious file looks like an ordinary Adobe Acrobat document. Last but not least, it has an icon of a .pdf file. Because of this, many users open the malicious email without fear and then click the provided link to download the “label” that is necessary for a package addressed to them to be delivered. If a user clicks the link, the download of Lebal copy.exe, which is a malicious file, starts. Without a doubt, Lebal is not the only harmful malicious application that uses this tactic to slither onto users’ computers, so you cannot leave your system unprotected. Our security specialists highly recommend installing reputable security software. Without it, new malware can enter your system easily the next day after you delete Lebal.
