According to the company’s study, the new beasts on the block are part of the Casbaneiro (Metamorfo) family. These viruses are primarily popular in Latin America where cryptocurrency adoption is on the rise.

The most important part is that the attacker is able to hijack the victim’s clipboard data and replace it with his own. For example, when you want to send Bitcoin to somebody’s wallet, you coins will be sent to an address you never intended to paste.  

ESET experts recommend that users follow basic security rules when entering personal data to make online payments, and use reliable software to protect their devices," ESET said.

The crypto analyst @CryptoMichNL believes that there are two paths ahead of Bitcoin at the moment. If it fails to recover to $8,300, he says on his Twitter page, then the market should be ready for the flagship coin to drop and find support at the $7,800 or $7,300 levels.

Whichever way it goes, ‘continuation of the ranging on either of the levels is going to occur’.
