Better Scan Your PC If You Installed This Mario Game

Picture this. You’re sitting at your PC, playing your favorite Mario game with worlds of magic mushrooms and flying turtles. Life is good. But little do you know, under the surface of your innocent gaming session, something sinister is going on.

This is no ordinary Super Mario game. It’s a digital wolf in sheep’s clothing, with a dark secret.

Behind the scenes, a virus unfolds. Cyber whiz-kids at Cyble have uncovered that while your fingers busily tapping away at the keyboard, navigating Mario through his virtual playground, you’re playing into the hands of shadowy threat actors.

These are not your usual villains. They’re not hiding in your wardrobe or lurking under your bed. Instead, they’re in your game installers, silently and relentlessly working in the background.

While you’re absorbed in your game, these invisible foes have their hands full mining cryptocurrency and picking your digital pockets. A seemingly innocent Super Mario Bros game installer in reality is a Trojan virus smuggling in a Monero miner and the SupremeBot mining client.

Once settled in, these unwelcome guests silently reach out to a command and control server, grab a mining configuration, and proceed to drain your computer’s resources to mine cryptocurrency.

But they don’t stop there. These digital thieves are greedy. They download the notorious Umbral Stealer malware to siphon off precious info from your browser, sneak peeks at your screens, and even swipe photos from your webcam. Even your cryptocurrency wallets are not safe.

You may feel like you’ve just tumbled down a nightmarish digital rabbit hole. And indeed, it’s a disturbing truth. But sadly, this is not the first rodeo for these threat actors.

Games have long been a favorite camouflage for such trickery. Remember the Pokémon NFT card game malware? Or the Epic Games launcher malware?

The moral of the story? Always double-check where your game installer comes from. Keep your antivirus or security software turned on and updated. And remember, no matter how trustworthy an installer might look, there could always be a Big Bad Wolf hiding in its bytes.
