DanaBot stands out as a dynamic banking trojan, consistently introducing new variants each year. Its primary objective is to extract sensitive data, particularly targeting online banking credentials. Additionally, DanaBot serves as spyware and acts as a conduit for disseminating various types of malware.
DanaBot exhibits various symptoms, including unusual network activity, system performance degradation, unauthorized access attempts, frequent network connectivity issues, file corruption or loss, irregular keystrokes, desktop screenshots taken without user initiation, ransomware-related messages, and alerts about suspicious data exfiltration patterns.
