Click Studios developers of Passwordstate enterprise password manager warns users of ongoing phishing attacks by hackers.
The company notified its users of hackers using phishing techniques to spread the updated Moserpass malware. The Moserpass malware is known to steal information, the number of customers affected by the malware between April 20 and April 22 remains undisclosed.
In a second advisory published by the company, users have been advised users who updated during the period mentioned above are believed to be affected and the hackers may have compromised their Passwordstate password records.
All the affected users are being guided by Click Studios, by providing a hotfix to resolve the issue by removing the malware from their systems.
How do hackers further compromise Passwordstate?
In yet another advisory released today by Click Studio, customers shared the emails they received on their social media. The hackers manage to recreate phishing emails to match the company correspondence and push a new Moserpass variant.
The company warned its users not to share information on social media as hackers were constantly monitoring information on their social media accounts. This has resulted in bad actors managing to replicate Click Studios email content.
The Moserpass data theft malware currently used by the bad actors to infect more Passwordstate users has only managed to target a small number of customers.
