Cybercriminals Exploit Free Software Lures

Users are being tricked by actors giving out free or pirated versions of commercial software. This software contains copies of Cisco Webex Meetings App (ptService.exe) which have been acting as a trojan horse, trapping unsuspecting users. By executing 'Setup.exe' users accidently download a malware loader called Hijack Loader, which then deploys an information stealer known as Vidar Stealer.
