According to ZDNet a new malware attack Called “Roaming Mantis,” which initially targeted Android users has now made its way to the iOS community and until recently has mostly targeted South East Asia.
According to researchers at security company Kaspersky Lab, who also examined the previous campaign. “The Roaming Mantis campaign evolved significantly in a short period of time,” says Kaspersky researcher Suguru Ishimaru. The attacks are now making its way to users in Europe. The Roaming Mantis is an information-stealing malware campaign which has added iOS device phishing and cryptocurrency mining to its targets.
Kaspersky Lab says “The rapid growth of the campaign implies that those behind it have a strong financial motivation and are probably well-funded.”
