Popular Slay the Spire mod hacked to deliver malware on Christmas Day | #hacking | #cybersecurity | #infosec | #comptia | #pentest | #hacker

A popular Slay the Spire mod called Downfall was compromised over the holidays, and used to push malware to users via a Steam update. The malware in question is called Epsilon and is used to steal information from infected hardware, and was present in the standalone version of the mod on Steam for around an hour on Christmas Day.

The attackers compromised one of the mod’s developers’ Steam and Discord accounts, allowing access to the mod’s Steam account. The Epsilon malware is frequently used on Discord, often packaged with a game executable, and once installed runs in the background harvesting the hardware’s cookies, and any saved passwords or credit card information on the device or stored by browsers (everything from Google Chrome to Vivaldi).
