Attackers are targeting cryptowallets of Telegram users with the Echelon infostealer. The malware is aimed at defrauding new or unsuspecting users of a cryptocurrency discussion channel.
It was posted to a channel focused on cryptocurrency in October, researchers found. The campaign was a “spray and pray” effort, they said. The Echelon malware was delivered to users of the “Smokes Night” channel on the Telegram messaging app, researchers say.
