Hand Of Thief Trojan

Hand of Thief Trojan is Trojan malware developed to enable cyber criminals to compromise Linux systems and steal user information from the systems. The Hand of Thief Trojan (HoT Trojan) is one of the first strains of malware to specifically target desktop Linux systems, and it s claimed that the HoT Trojan can currently compromise at least fifteen different variants of Linux.

The Hand of Thief Trojan is considered a work in progress, lacking some of the key features to be an effective attack tool, but it s still being sold for $2,000 by its Russian-based developer. And while the code isn’t yet complete at this time, the Hand of Thief Trojan could eventually have full malware capabilities, including the ability to inject content into banking websites as well as better exfiltration and filtering features.
