The banking trojan, which mainly targeted Brazil, Mexico and Spain, blocked the victim’s screen, recorded keystrokes, simulated mouse and keyboard activity and displayed fake pop-up windows

This week, law enforcement in Brazil took action to disrupt the Grandoreiro banking malware in a joint effort that was also supported by the ESET research team, which provided technical analysis, statistics and known C&C server domain names and IP addresses.

The operation – which was further supported by Interpol, Spanish police and Caixa Bank – targeted individuals believed to be high in Grandoreiro’s pecking order. Grandoreiro targeted victims in Brazil, Mexico, Spain and most recently Argentina, causing millions in fraud losses since at least 2017.
