Trojan steals online poker login credentials
Last Wednesday evening, the 10th of May, we received an interesting sample from a user. It was a normal PE executable named RBCalc.exe and the submitter described it as a rootkit. We proceeded with the sample as usual, beginning analysis on it. It wasn't long at all before we noticed it contained a nasty surprise. RBCalc.exe, also known as Rakeback calculator, was actually a Trojan. When RBCalc.exe is run, it silently drops four executable files into the user's %SystemRoot%\system32 folder and executes them.
The purpose of the dropped executables is to collect login information for various online poker websites from the user's computer and send them back to the malware author. In addition, the main malware component was protected by a rootkit driver that hid its process and launch point from registry. F-Secure : News from the Lab
