Arkei Stealer Analysis 2022

Malware, short for "Malicious Software", is a software developed by cybercriminals to steal information and damage devices connected to the Internet. Common examples of malware are traditionally viruses, worms, trojans, and ransomware. 

However, stealer pests have also come to the fore in recent years.  Stealer, as a term, completes itself as an information thief. This type of malware infects the device and then collects data from the device to send the information to the attacker. 

Key findings include:

  • Arkei is a stealer family, mostly written in C++.
  • It was first seen in the wild around May 2018. 
  • It collects data about local computers, browser cookies, messengers, and cryptocurrency wallets. Then it zips the collected data and uploads it to Hacker’s C&C Channel.
