If you haven't yet heard of a malware strain called 'Predator the Thief', it's something that belongs on your radar.

It first emerged as a threat in July of 2018, when it was used in conjunction with an extensive phishing campaign.

In its original incarnation, it proved more than capable of stealing passwords, browser data, user names and the contents of cryptocurrency wallets. In addition, it was able to access the infected victim's webcam and take pictures with it, sending everything to a command and control server.

Unfortunately, the group behind the malware has been busy updating it. It's recently been spotted in the wild with a new set of enhanced capabilities that make it more difficult for antivirus programs to detect its presence.

In addition to that, the hackers have upped their game on the phishing campaign front. This included adding new documents to use as lures to hook the victim into inadvertently installing the malicious code.
