Malware From The Pirate Bay May Hijack Website To Steal Crypto

The movies downloaded from The Pirate Bay bring a malware to the user’s computer. That was the conclusion reached by a security researcher, with the nickname  0xffff0800 in Twitter. He told that when he downloaded a movie ‘The Girl In The Spider’s Web’ from TPB, a .LNK shortcut with CozyBear malware got to his computer.

However, the Cozy Bear malware is just a decoy, the real thing that brings damages is Powershell commands. Once the malware reaches the computer, it carries out malicious actions, like disabling Windows Defender and installing viral extensions in Firefox and Chrome browsers. Moreover, it edits the appearance of the website on the user’s computer.

The movie is an application itself which links the computer to the external malicious servers.

Moreover, the newly installed viral extensions can modify the JavaScript code and add some advertisements to the main page, like it is shown below.

Source: Bleeping Computer

What is the most dangerous is that the malware can edit the appearance of the web page and add or change the information without the user’s awareness, this ability allows the malware to steal the crypto. For example, if the user open Wikipedia page on a compromised system, he/she is likely to see the message saying “Wikipedia now accepts donations in form of bitcoin” and a ‘DONATE’ sign. All the donations will go to the hacker.

In addition, the malware is able to change crypto wallet addresses provided on the pages. Unfortunately, you will not even notice how the hacker stole your money.

BitPay Transactions Surpasses $1B in 2018, B2B Payments Records 225% Increase

BitPay is a US-based bitcoin payment provider which has recently announced its financial results of the past year. The company has processed over $1 billion in transactions alone. Moreover, its B2B payments record 225% increase in compare to 2017.

The main reason of such a lift-off is that Bitpay added a lot of new clients, like Dish Networks, HackerOne, and the State of Ohio, as well as many other law firms, data center providers, and IT vendors.

The CEO of BitPay, Stephen Pair, commented on this development:

“BitPay’s B2B business continues to grow rapidly as our solution is cheaper and quicker than a bank wire from most regions of the world. To process over a $1 Billion for the second year in a row despite Bitcoin’s large price drop shows that Bitcoin is being used to solve real pain points around the world.”

BitPay mostly supports Bitcoin transactions, however, it also supports payments with Bitcoin Cash, Gemini, and Paxos. During that year a lot of companies had to lay off their employees due to the market situation, yet, Bitpay conversely increased its manpower by 78 percent in the past year.

In addition, BitPay is attractive to the investors, in 2018, it raised $40 million in Series B funding round taking the total raised capital to $70 million.
