A new malware called Vega Stealer is doing rounds of the internet. Researchers claim that Vega Stealer is designed to gather saved financial data from Firefox and Google Chromebrowsers. The researchers from Proofpoint say that the malware is being used for small phishing attacks but it has the potential to become a threat to businesses in the future.

Vega Stealer is a variant of August Stealer and it finds and steals credentials, confidential documents, cryptocurrency wallet details and other important information. The researchers claim that the malware focuses on the theft of saved credentials and and payment information from Google Chrome.



The credentials consists of passwords, profiles, saved credit card details and cookies. On the other hand, when the Firefox browser is in use then the malware focuses on specific files which store information like keys and passwords.

Apart from stealing information, the malware also captures screenshots of the infected device and scans files that end with .doc, .docx, .txt, .rtf, .xls, .xlsx, or .pdf for exfiltration. The researchers also add that presently the malware is being utilized to target businesses in the field of advertising, marketing, retail, manufacturing and public relations.

The phishing campaign designed to spread the malware is also not a very sophisticated one. The hackers just send an email with the subject line, ""Online store developer required". Some of these mails target businesses while some focus on individuals. These emails consist of an attachment called "brief.doc" which has the malicious macros that download the Vega Stealer in the system.

The reachers highlight, "The macro retrieves the payload in a two-step process in which junk functions iterate while simultaneously building a string to be executed using a GetObject function. This string is the first request in the two-step process (Figure 2). The first request executed by the document retrieves an obfuscated JScript/PowerShell script. The execution of the resulting PowerShell script creates the second request, which in turn downloads the executable payload of Vega Stealer. The payload is saved to the victim machine in the user's "Music" directory with a filename of "ljoyoxu.pkzip". Once this file is downloaded and saved, it is executed automatically via the command line."

The researchers further add, "The document macro utilized in this campaign is a commodity macro that we believe is for sale and used by multiple actors, including the threat actor spreading Emotet banking Trojan," the researchers say. "However, the URL patterns from which the macro retrieves the payload are the same as those used by an actor we are tracking who distributes the Ursnif banking Trojan, which often downloads secondary payloads such as Nymaim, Gootkit, or IcedID. As a result, we attribute this campaign to the same actor with medium confidence."

For Facebook, the future is all about Stories. At F8, the company shared the surprising revelation that the Stories format is growing faster than feeds.

But if the company wants to maintain that pace, it needs to juice Stories' growth in the main Facebook app, not just Instagram and WhatsApp. Now, it looks like the company may have a new strategy to do just that.
The company just introduced a new set of updates for its camera-centric feature, but, unlike some previous updates, the features will roll out to users in India first.

Among the updates, a new archive feature that's sort of a Facebook Stories equivalent of Snapchat's Memories, as well as a new feature that lets users share audio clips to their Story. 

Much like the Snapchat equivalent, the archive feature lets users privately save their Stories within the Facebook app. Likewise, Facebook Camera, is also getting a save feature independent of your phone storage.

In both cases, the goal is to give users a way to privately save photos in a way that's tied to their Facebook account rather than their phone's local storage. Besides making Stories more appealing to those who don't have much storage to spare, it also makes it easier for people who share devices with family members, according to Facebook.

Saving isn't the only area where Facebook is making tweaks to Stories, though. The app is also adding the ability to share audio messages to Stories. Instead of starting a post from the camera, people will be able to record an audio clip and simply add a colored background (and maybe some emoji). 

This is significant not just because Facebook's making a Stories feature that doesn't rely on the camera, but because audio messages are already incredibly popular in India and many other countries.

By adding this functionality to Stories, Facebook could capitalize on some of that popularity and, perhaps, get a few more people to start using the platform.

That Facebook is targeting India (and, by extension, other developing markets) with its newest Stories features is telling. While anecdotal evidence suggests the feature may be slow to take off in the U.S., the company can't afford to give up on Facebook Stories entirely. 

And developing markets like India represent a big opportunity here. Unlike Snapchat, which has relatively few users outside of the U.S. and Europe, Facebook already has a sizeable base (and one that's still growing). So if it can build the Stories feature with these users in mind, Facebook has an even better shot at getting them to become regular users of Stories.

That not only helps Facebook continue beating Snapchat, it helps the company ensure that its version of Stories keeps dominating.

Instagram is getting a new “Usage Insights” tool that helps users see how much time they’ve spent in the social media app, according to a discovery from app researcher Jane Manchun Wong who found the feature hidden in the code of Instagram’s Android app (viaTechCrunch).

Instagram CEO Kevin Systrom later confirmed the original report in a series of tweets, commenting that the company is “building tools that will help the IG community know more about the time they spend on Instagram — any time should be positive and intentional.”

There aren’t any actual details about what the feature will entail, but it marks Instagram as the latest major company to start thinking about how users are engaging with their products, following in the footsteps of companies like Google and parent company Facebook. Most recently, Google announced that Android P will include several features to help users manage their time on their phones more wisely, including detailed breakdowns of how long they’ve been using different apps.

Microsoft released its latest Windows 10 build from the Redstone 5 development branch today, bringing the build number to 17672. Along with a bunch of new features, there's also a long list of fixes, improvements, and known issues.

Most notably, the 'preparing to install' bug has been fixed. The issue left new builds at 100% preparing to install for sometimes hours at a time before finalizing the installation. This bug was actually fixed in the last build, but you couldn't see it until upgrading to another one.

Here's the full list of fixes and improvements:

  • We fixed an issue where right-clicking to copy text in Microsoft Edge didn’t work in recent flights.

  • We fixed an issue with structuredquery.dll resulting some users experiencing a cyclical explorer.exe crash.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the two-finger gesture to dismiss all notifications not working in the Action Center.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in the Korean IME sometimes entering duplicate characters when typing into text fields in certain websites in Microsoft Edge.

  • You can now refresh the Books pane in Microsoft Edge using a pull gesture.

  • When you pin books to Start from Microsoft Edge you will now see a live tile that cycles between the book cover and your current completion progress.

  • When printing PDFs from Microsoft Edge, you’ll find a new option to choose the scale of your print out (Actual size, or Fit to page).

  • We’ve updated Timeline so that in addition to seeing the number of available tabs to restore associated with a particular Sets activity, you can now cycle through them.

  • We’ve made some adjustments to improve the quality of audio when recording clips using the game bar (WIN+G). Thanks, everyone who shared feedback about this – please take a moment to try it out in today’s build and let us know how it goes.

  • We fixed an issue that could result in apps sometimes not fully maximizing to the top of the screen.

  • We fixed an issue resulting in certain devices not being able to wake from sleep in the last two flights (just showed a black screen).

  • When you hover over the leaf icon in Task Manager’s Status column, you will now see a tooltip describing what it means (this app is suspending processes to help improve system performance).

  • Building on our work from Build 17639, in addition to showing Bluetooth battery level in Settings for supported devices, you will now see a notification when one of those devices is low on battery.

  • For our WSL fans out there: if you’ve enabled WSL, you’ll now see an option to “Open Linux Shell here” when you Shift + Right-click on the whitespace of a File Explorer folder.

  • We’ve introduced preview support for same-site cookies in Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer 11.

Here are the known issues:

  • After completing the Windows Mixed Reality First Run experience, OOBE is black. Motion Controllers are also not recognized in exclusive apps. If you need your Mixed Reality experience to be working it is advised you not take this build until these issues are fixed.

  • We’re aware of an issue that causes Narrator to read extra text when invoking Alt + Tab, and we’re working on a fix.

  • If you complete the setup for a Windows Mixed Reality headset on this build, the headset will remain black until it is unplugged and reconnected to the PC.

  • We’re making progress on our work to support dark theme in File Explorer and the Common File Dialog, and you’ll see improvements in this build, but we still have some work to do.

  • Insiders who use Remote Desktop, project their screen, or have multiple monitors may experience explorer.exe hangs on this build. This issue can also lead to Microsoft Edge hangs.

There are also known issues that have to do specifically with Sets and Office integration:

  • Sets UX for Office Win32 desktop apps is not final. The experience will be refined over time based on feedback.

  • The top of some Win32 desktop app windows may appear slightly underneath the tab bar when created maximized. To work around the issue, restore and re-maximize the window.

  • Closing one tab may sometimes minimize the entire set.

  • Tiling and cascading windows, including features like “View Side by Side” in Word, will not work for inactive tabs.

  • The Office Visual Basic Editor window will currently be tabbed but is not intended to be in the future.

  • Opening an Office document while the same app has an existing document open may cause an unintended switch to the last active document. This will also happen when closing a sheet in Excel while other sheets remain open.

  • Local files or non-Microsoft cloud files will not be automatically restored, and no error message will be provided to alert the user to that fact.

As usual, you should read through the known issues before upgrading to any new build. If you're on the Fast ring, you can get Windows 10 build 17672 by heading to Settings -> Update & security -> Windows Update -> Check for updates. If not, you can sign up via the Windows Insider Program tab.

Windows install failed: DEP & unspecified installer error

Hello,

I'm attempting to install OpenOffice 3.2.1 on Windows XP Professional Japanese, Service Pack 3, but am unable to. I'd really appreciate it if anyone can help.I can start the installer and choose my install options (i.e. which parts of OpenOffice to install), but upon attempting to continue beyond this point, the install fails, blocked by Windows DEP (I won't post the actual error message, as it's in Japanese). I've disabled DEP in the boot.ini file, but this doesn't solve the problem - instead, the install fails at the same point, but with an unspecified error, rather than a DEP-related one.

Please help.

Hello,

I have used OO for years with no problems till I "upgraded" to windows 10 and tried to reinstall OO.When nearly at the end of installation I get the error "error occurred during registration of extensions" . Installation rolls back when the error OK box is clicked. If I do not click the error ok box but click the OO desktop icon I get the error " application failed to start because the side by side configuration is incorrect". I have tried all suggestions I can find on this website without any solution working.

Please help.

Hello,

I recently discovered that you can use a field to put chapter titles in the page header. However a problem I encountered was that if a chapter starts in the middle of the page, the chapter name in the header is for the chapter that ends on that page, not the one that starts on that page. Not necessarily a bug per se, but not my desired action.

Please help.

Hello,

I teach life skills to the special ed high school students-not severely handicapped, but they will be doing manual labor the rest of their lives. So I'm starting a unit on how to decorate an apartment-most of them will live in group homes or apartments if they're lucky-and do it on a budget.I love doing the 'trash to treasure' thing, and have been out at the garage sales this morning looking for quirky, cheap items to make things from. Does anyone have any great ideas to share? 

Please help.

Pink insanity!Anyway! So this week is her bridal shower with her friends (as opposed to our older family members), and it's basically entitled "you like pink? YOU GOT IT!" and it's a PINK OVERLOAD!
