What is Numando
Numando is a malware that functions like a Trojan horse. The purpose of this malware is to infect computers, spy the user and steal banking information. Numando Trojan mainly targets users from Brazil, as well as Mexico and Spain. Security researchers have classified Numando as banking trojan which means that its primary goal is to steal banking information, as well as bank credentials (logins and passwords). Usually, such malware is able to control computers, download and install other malicious software, and steal user’s personal data.
Numando malware operates by creating overlay screens that mimic sign-in pages of commonly used online banks. The overlay screens are so similar that it is impossible to distinguish fake sign-in pages from real ones. When a victim logs into an online bank and enters credentials, Numando records that information and passes it on to the criminals, who gain access of the victim’s bank accounts. Cyber criminals gain control over the victim’s bank accounts and can withdraw funds.
As mentioned above, Numando can completely control the victim’s computer, including simulating keystrokes on the keyboard and mouse movements. This ability can be used to make fraudulent transfers and confirm them. This trojan is also capable of taking screenshots, starting and ending processes, turning computers on and off.
Numando malware can lead to blackmail, other malware attacks, including ransomware and cryptominers malware, very serious privacy problems, identity theft, as well as significant financial losses. Ransomware can lead to the loss of personal documents and important data. Cryptominers are malware that uses computer resources to secretly mine cryptocurrency. Therefore, it is very important to use an antivirus, and if there are signs of an attack (if the Numando malware is detected) immediately scan the computer and remove the malware.
