New information-theft malware 'Napolar' is gaining traction, researchers warn

 

 

A new piece of information-stealing malware that appeared earlier this year has been rapidly gaining traction during the past few weeks, with hundreds of infection attempts being detected every day by antivirus vendors.

The malware is called Solarbot and its creator first started to advertise it to cybercriminals in May, security researchers from antivirus vendor Avast said Wednesday. The number of infection attempts using this malware increased significantly over the past few weeks, the researchers said.
