Fake Windows Game Booster Spreads Password Stealing Malware

August 29, 2019 / Lawrence Abrams

Attackers have created a fake site that impersonates the legitimate Smart Game Booster site, but instead distributes a Trojan that steals your passwords, cryptocurrency wallets, browser history, and much more. A tactic that is being seen more often is for attackers to create fake and convincing web sites that pretend to be legitimate software. These fake sites, though, distribute password stealing Trojans instead. For example, in the past we have reported on sites being created that pretend to be Windows system optimizers and VPN software, but actually infect the user with the AZORult Trojan.  A new site was discovered by security researcher MalwareHunterTeam called gamebooster.pro that is identical to the legitimate site pcgameboost.com.
