New Version Of Meduza Stealer Released In Dark Web

On Christmas Eve, Resecurity’s HUNTER (HUMINT) spotted the author of perspective password stealer Meduza has released a new version (2.2). This product has already generated significant interest in Dark Web after the initial release in June this year. One of the key significant improvements are support of more software clients (including browser-based cryptocurrency wallets), upgraded credit card (CC) grabber, and additional advanced mechanisms for password storage dump on various platforms to extract credentials and tokens. Altogether, Meduza makes a great competitor to Azorult, Redline, Racoon, and Vidar Stealer used by cybercriminals for account takeover (ATO), online-banking theft, and financial fraud.

Translation:

The report of Meduza Stealer contains specific signature with its brand. Similar to Azorult and Redline the structure of the report (log) is very detailed providing insights about the victim’s infected machine.

GUI:

Configuration Panel:

Coming in 2024, the author behind Meduza is implmenting the following upgrades:

  • Chromium-based Browsers Support (Local Storage Dump), as some of the WEB-sites and extensions (for e.g. Coinbase) store their authorization tokens. Notably, the week before current release, the author implemented Windows Credential Manager and Windows Vault dump.
  • Password grabber has been optimized and re-written from STL to WinAPI, multiple improvements have been implemented into C2C communications;
  • Support of new browser-based cryptocurrency wallets including but not limited to OKX, Enrypt, CryptoCom, Sui, Petra, Talisman. Besides crypto-related tokens, Meduza also supports Google Account tokens, which may be used for cookie manipulation to access compromised accounts. There was added support of Google Chrome Canary, Google Chrome Dev, Google Chrome Beta. In the C2C panel there is a new dection called “Google Token Recovery” allowing to process such tokens.
  • Improved crypting stub and AV evasion. For additional fee ($119) the author may deliver enhanced obfuscation of the stealer with better AV anti-detection coverage.

Interface of “Google Token Recovery” feature:



Notably, Meduza has partnered with one of the reputable underground crypting services called TrueCrypt Service. This service is widely used by malware and ransomware operators to obfuscate malicious payloads and evade AVs.

Crypting is available via interactive Telegram bot:

Notably, the latest result of crypting showed great results and detection just by 1 AV from 27 (1/27):

Meduza Stealer 2.2 is available for rent starting at $199 per month. The team behind the stealer is also offering crypting services with public (shared across all customers) and private stub (prepared individually), as well as servers for rent to host C2C panel.

After the payment has been made, the author will invite the new client into private (invite-only) channel on Telegram where he will share the newly released tooling.

In fact, the most newest version released for today and available on private Telegram channel after subscription activation is Meduza 2.2.7.



The C2C panel has been also upgraded and remained written in Python:

In order to install Meduza, the operator needs to follow the following instructions:

  1. Launch MedusaServer.exe
  2. Install Python 3.10.2
  3. Install Microsoft Visual Studio Redistributable
  4. Execute in console the following commands:

pip install poetry

poetry config virtualenvs.in-project true

cd panel

poetry install

.venv\Scripts\activate

playwright install

python server.py

Meduza 2.2 supports communications via Telegram IM to deliver logs from the infected victim. The operator may define API key and ID of the channel to set it up.

Meduza Stealer remains one of the best in class. The product has operative support and constant updates with significant feature set improvements. Meduza has already started to compete with Azorult and Redline Stealer due to flexible configuration system and wide application coverage.
