Where does Trojan.Kasidet come from?

The sample we have found was posing as "WMI Commandline Utility by Microsoft," which is obviously a disguise for this Trojan to deceive unsuspecting computer users. You can download such a malicious program basically in two ways. First, you may find a spam e-mail in your spam or inbox folder, which has an attachment. Clearly, this attachment is this Trojan in disguise but the spam could be so convincing that you may actually believe that you need to open its attachment. Please remember that you could practically risk your financial state by doing so and it could be too late to delete Trojan.Kasidet by the time you may notice its presence.

Another way for you to drop such a beast onto your system is to land on a malicious website that uses Exploit Kits. It is essential to know that such kits can only harm you if your browsers and drivers are not updated properly and frequently. If you load such a page in your outdated browser, it can use its malicious script to drop this threat or even ransomware programs without your noticing it. So, if you want to avoid this kind of exposure, you need to keep all your programs up-to-date. At the same time, you also need to stay away from suspicious websites and unsafe third-party advertisements and corrupt links. Clicking on such content could easily redirect you to such a malicious page with Exploit Kits. This can also happen if your computer is infected with malware like adware. This is why you should always make sure that there is not a single threat on board. Thus, we recommend that after you delete Trojan.Kasidet, you run a proper online malware scanner to identify all other threats as well.

How does Trojan.Kasidet work?

This Trojan program is indeed a PoS or Point of Sale malware, which is designed to steal financial information from your debit and credit cards. As a matter of fact, this malware infection can also retrieve information from PoS machines in retail stores, which obviously makes it even more dangerous. This threat has been spreading since 2015 according to our malware specialists. This malware program usually comes as a self-extracting archive that drops its payload and executes itself. Once it is up and running, it disables process monitoring, overrides proxy settings, and creates a random-name folder in "%APPDATA%" that may look like "%APPDATA%\Xl5jVVxcVWIx." The random-name executable it drops in this folder can have a name like "abgrcnq.exe." After these steps, this Trojan also creates a scheduled task with a random name like "Xl5jVVxcVWIx.job" in order to start up automatically every time your operating system starts up. This malware infection also establishes connection to C&C servers and exchanges information with them although its main focus is stealing your card details to get your money. We strongly recommend that you remove Trojan.Kasidet immediately and make sure that your banking is still safe by changing your passwords right away.
